(CNN) – CNN is reporting Ben Carson doesn’t “see a political path forward” in the Republican presidential nomination process, and will not attend Thursday’s Republican presidential debate, he said in a statement.

Carson and his aides reached the decision after a staff meeting Wednesday morning in Baltimore after a disappointing finish on Super Tuesday.

Carson said he’s not planning on formal suspending his presidential campaign and will go into more detail during an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Committee Conference on Friday.
