Ben Carson isn't going to quit his GOP presidential bid, though "there is no pathway" and despite getting offers for "many deals," according to friend and adviser Armstrong Williams.

Williams tells Politico the onetime poll-leading retired pediatric neurosurgeon had been offered a Florida Senate seat — among other offers — to step aside in the race, declining to say where offers came from.

"He has no interest in doing that . . . That's politics, and he's not a politician," Williams said.

Williams, who said he spoke with Carson on Super Tuesday afternoon, added that Carson isn't trying to help front-runner Donald Trump or rivals Texas Sen. Ted Cruz or Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

"He's not in this cycle to do anybody any favors," Williams said. "It's not about a pathway to him. There is no pathway. It's about his constituency and his base telling him to stay in the race."

"No one has a pathway to the nomination except Donald Trump," he said. "They're all in the same boat."

In a separate interview with Breitbart News, Williams said Carson "has every intention of going forward and staying in this race until he decides that he's going to do something else."
