Ben Carson's Top Staffers Resign in a Delayed Campaign Shake-Up

Two of Ben Carson's top advisers, including campaign manager Barry Bennett, quit Thursday following an internal power struggle, a sharp decline in the polls and a week of confusion about who would remain on the former neurosurgeon's presidential campaign team.

.

"Barry Bennett and I have resigned from the Carson campaign effective immediately," said departed communications director Doug Watts in a statement to The Washington Post. "We respect the candidate and we have enjoyed helping him go from far back in the field to top tier status."

.

Armstrong Williams, Carsons confidant and business adviser, told the Washington Post that retired Army general Robert F. Dees would take over as campaign chairman, with current senior adviser Ed Brookover, a longtime Republican consultant, managing the operation.

.

Bob Dees is in charge and Dr. Carson will make that announcement on Monday in Washington, Williams said. Bob is a general. He knows how to manage and run a smooth organization.

.

Driving the sudden departures were long-simmering tensions between Bennett and Williams. Bennett, a veteran GOP operative, wanted the campaign to be more traditional in its setup, fundraising, and messaging while Williams felt Bennetts approach did not bring out Carsons strengths. It was a classic divide between the candidates friends and professional aides, with each side believing it was working in Carsons best interests.

.

The breaking point came two days before Christmas when Williams and Carson decided together to invite The Washington Post and The Associated Press to Carsons Maryland mansion to talk about a staff shake-upwithout Bennetts knowledge. Bennett felt burned by Carson and that Williams was taking control of the campaign even though he was not formally part of it.
