Ben Carson ‘Leaning’ Towards Endorsing Donald Trump

(ABC News) — Ben Carson tells ABC News that he has been considering endorsing Trump and leaning in the direction of endorsing the Republican front-runner.

“I have been considering it and I am leaning in that direction and more information will be forthcoming soon,” Carson told ABC News in a statement this evening.

A source familiar with Trump’s news conference scheduled for Friday confirmed that Carson plans to endorse Donald Trump Friday morning.

Carson’s campaign has a close relationship with Trump’s campaign. Carson’s former campaign manager, Barry Bennett, now works as an adviser to Trump and the two campaigns have coordinated their efforts on multiple occasions — from protesting debate formats, to working together to attack Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
