Ben Carson, evangelical Christian and retired neurosurgeon, declares presidential candidacy



Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who has never held elective office, said on Sunday that he would seek the 2016 Republican nomination

Dr. Ben Carson, the famous neurosurgeon and conservative super star, has made ... for a private health care savings plan and a flat tax in a speech that went viral and ..... Anyone who is a true, Christian, American would be better than Obama.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson told a Florida television station on Sunday that he is running for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

Carson, 63, who is popular with the conservative Tea Party movement, is expected to formally declare his candidacy at an event in Detroit today.

He would be the first African-American to enter the growing Republican field for the party's presidential nomination next year.

"Many people have suggested to me that I should run for president, even though I'm not a politician," said Carson, who has never before sought elective office.


Other potential Republican candidates include former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Among Democrats, former Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is considered the front-runner for the party's presidential nomination. Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont entered the Democratic race last week.
