Famous Surgeon Ben Carson Declares White House Bid With Documentary - A Breath of Fresh Air

Posted in: , ,

Dr. Ben Carson's Gifted Hands was one the first motivational books I read and it made a big impact on my personal development. So I'm excited to know that he's declared that he wants to join the race to the White House come 2016 as a republican candidate.

ABC News reports that Ben Carson, a famous pediatric neurosurgeon and conservative political star, will air a nearly 40 minute-long ad introducing himself to the American people this weekend in his opening bid for the Republican nomination.

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.

Carson said last month in an interview that he has noticed the massive support he has been getting from his fans and the general public to consider a White House run.

“No, I don’t want to be president. Why would any sane person want to do that? I think I have to consider that, with so many clamoring for me to do it.”

First known as a fierce opponent of Obamacare, Carson as a conservative option for president gained prominence last year at the National Prayer Breakfast when he gave a speech that resonated with millions.

In front of an audience that included President Obama and Vice President Biden, Carson spoke out about political correctness, health care and taxes. He called for a private health care savings plan and a flat tax.

The speech quickly went viral, and led to an editorial in the Wall Street Journal titled Ben Carson for President.

It has been revealed since then that Carson has a grassroots effort to draft him for a 2016 presidential run that has raised millions for his campaign.
