Two of Ben Carson’s top staffers have left the campaign. Ben Carson’s campaign manager, Barry Bennett, and communications director, Doug Watts, announced today they are leaving the Carson campaign. From thehill.com,
In an exit interview with The Hill, Bennett blamed Carson’s close friend and adviser Armstrong Williams for a handful of political missteps and accused him of railroading the retired neurosurgeon’s White House bid.
“I called Ben this morning…and explained to him the root of the problem is that you told me Armstrong is not involved in the campaign but he clearly is,” Bennett said. “My frustration level is boiling over so I told him I think it’s best that I leave.”
Bennett said he believes “a lot more” staffers will follow him out the door and predicted the campaign team will be “decimated.”
