Following rumors that the Republican National Committee discussed the possibility of a brokered convention, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson blasted the RNC and threatened to leave the party altogether. Carson accused the RNC of using a potential brokered convention — in which no candidate is able to secure the majority of delegates needed to win the nomination — to prevent poll frontrunners like Donald Trump from securing the nomination.
"I am prepared to lose fair and square, as I am sure is Donald. But I will not sit by and watch a theft," Carson said in a statement, adding that if RNC leaders were indeed brainstorming ways to prevent Trump from being nominated, "I assure you, Donald Trump won't be the only one leaving the party."
