Ben Carson insisted after Tuesday’s Nevada caucuses that he’s not going anywhere and said he will work to overcome the media and political pundits trying to push him out of the race.

With 5 percent of precincts reporting, Carson was in a distant fourth place. The retired neurosurgeon has had a string of disappointing finishes in early presidential contests so far.

“I know the pundits and the political class they want to call everything: 'It’s all done, it’s all over, you might as well go home,' " Carson said Tuesday night during a speech to supporters.

“But you know what, I believe that they’re wrong,” Carson continued. “The interesting thing about my life is that I’ve had so many situations where people said this is impossible, it can’t be done.

“So unless I hear those words, I don’t even get excited. So now that they’re starting to stay those things, that’s good.”

Carson went on to say Americans are interested in hearing real solutions and he will continue his voter outreach to highlight his ideas.

“And we will continue to talk about them, but that’s an uphill battle of course because the media tries to black you out,” he added. “But we will find a way, through the people ... and their ability to communicate with each other.”
