The first Republican to officially announce his candidacy is Dr. Ben Carson, famous pediatric neurosurgeon and author of NY Times bestseller “One Nation.”
Carson became a household name in conservative circles after he was invited to the National Prayer Breakfast in 2013. Carson chose to speak his mind on health care and political correctness to President Barack Obama, stunning the audience.
John Philip Sousa, the great grandson of the famous composer, started a super PAC that has raised over $11 million to draft Dr. Carson to run.
It seems the Doctor has heard their call, and will air an almost 40-minute long video on ABC News introducing himself as a candidate to the American people.
From ABC NEWS:
The documentary titled “A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America” will air in 22 states and Washington, DC. 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.
