Ben Carson will endorse Donald Trump on Friday, multiple sources told CNN.

Trump has a press conference scheduled for 9 a.m. ET in Palm Beach, Florida.

On Wednesday, the retired neurosurgeon, who dropped his presidential campaign earlier this month, told CNN’s Erin Burnett he was open to supporting either Trump or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

“You have to consider all the information, who is most likely to win, and what kind of shenanigans will drive voters away so they will not participate in the process. We have to be very careful in all those things,” Carson said.

The endorsement was first reported by the Washington Post.
