Dr. Benjamin Carson – Preparing Campaign For 2016?
Ben Carson, the man known to the Conservative movement as a brilliant neurosurgeon turned Conservative political activist, has begun to solidify the campaign structure necessary to run for Presidential office in 2016. Carson has recently approved the formation of his own Political Action Committee (PAC) titled “One Nation,” and has appointed a campaign manager for the future elections “if” he decides to run. When asked about a possible presidential run in 2016, Carson commented: “Now is the time to start all of the appropriate exploration and investigation and put down the structure that is necessary.” He also remarks stating that his campaign is “definitely a step or two closer than we were a year ago.”
Many Conservatives are hopeful for a Presidential ticket which features the name of this political celebrity, whereas Carson is still holding out the right to rescind his name from a future Presidential campaign if he deems it necessary. Looking at the remarks made by Dr. Carson, and examining his recent administrative actions taken toward setting up a campaign and the structure necessary to organize it effectively, Ben Carson is most certainly considering, if not accepting, a run for the highest political office in the land in the year 2016.
