Republican Ben Carson (African American) Hints He May Throw His Hat in the 2016 Ring

 

Yes, the 2016 race for the White House has already gotten started — and it looks like Dr. Ben Carson is first in the ring.

Carson, a famous pediatric neurosurgeon and conservative political star, will air an hour-long ad introducing himself to the American people this weekend, an aide to Carson confirms to ABC News. Carson said over the summer that he is “starting to think about” seeking the Republican presidential nomination, but has not made a formal announcement.

The documentary titled “A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America” will air in 22 states and Washington, D.C. The paid video will detail some of his biography and family life, including his rise from being born to a single mother with a poor childhood in Detroit to director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins for almost 40 years, known for his work separating conjoined twins, to potential 2016 presidential candidate.

Carson first became a conservative star when last year he created a buzz at the National Prayer Breakfast when in front of an audience that included President Obama and Vice President Biden he spoke out about political correctness, health care and taxes.

He also called for a private health care savings plan and a flat tax in the speech that went viral and led to an editorial in the Wall Street Journal titled Ben Carson for President. He is known as a fierce opponent of the president’s health care law known as Obamacare.
