Is Dr. Ben Carson ramping up his Presidential election team? All signs point to yes.
In a recent interview with the Washington Times, Dr. Carson may have let the cat out of the bag when he said this:
“Now is the time to start all of the appropriate exploration and investigation, and put down the structure that is necessary,” Dr. Carson said in a phone interview.
Asked about the likelihood he will run for president in 2016, Dr. Carson said: “I would say we are definitely a step or two closer than we were a year ago.”
“Obviously we are very interested in what happens in November,” he said. “And if the people also continue to show strong desire for me to run, obviously that would be an important factor too.”
“In the meantime, we will focus our attention on helping those candidates who understand the change we need in our nation, and how to lead toward the healing our of nation,” he said.
It seems that Dr. Carson has also already selected the man who would be his campaign manager… if he does indeed run for President. Dr. Carson has asked his friend, Houston businessman Terry Giles, to helm his campaign, if there is a campaign.
It’s plain to see why Dr. Carson has asked Mr. Giles to head his campaign…when asked about what differentiates Dr. Carson from other candidates, Mr. Giles was quick with his response.
“I keep hearing the same kind of people running for office making the same kind of promises that turn out to be hollow,” he said. “Ben is different. He is humble. It’s never been about him being first. He learned to put his patients first. And if Ben were placed in a real position of authority in this country, I am certain he would put America first.”
Will Dr. Carson run? It’s sure starting to look like it…
Now the question is – will conservatives support Dr. Carson’s campaign? He is beloved among the grassroots for his willingness to enter the political foray. He is a passionate defender of free market healthcare, religious freedom, the pro-life movement, and many other conservative issues. However, he is not an ardent supporter of gun rights… and we don’t really know where he stands on many other political issues.
Time will tell if Dr. Carson is the man to carry our banner…
