Someone Named Ben Carson Just Ended His Presidential Campaign?

I'm not kidding — who is this?

Harpo, who dis man?! Apparently, after “not seeing a path forward” post–Super Tuesday, this person running for president of the United States of America has suspended his campaign today. According to CNN, this mysterious man told the Conservative Political Action Conference that he is “leaving the campaign trail.” As a black man who was overjoyed to be in Chicago on the night our nation’s first black president, Barack Obama, was elected, I would have loved to cast a vote for another black presidential candidate. But I literally have no idea who this person is. I watched every GOP debate. Did he speak a lot? Did he have a memorable campaign slogan? Does he have a website?

Hmm. OK. Really, though, all jokes aside … who is this?
