  • Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson joins lawmakers as major GOP candidate for 2016 presidency

    New York Daily News, By Nicole Hensley, May 3

    GOP nominee hopeful Dr. Ben Carson is running for President.

    The retired neurosurgeon is joining a growing list of top-pick Republicans vying for the White House including Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.

    “I’m willing to be part of the equation and therefore, I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States of America,” Carson said Sunday evening.


    Carson’s quiet announcement during Sunday evening newscasts was broadcast through select local television stations owned by Sinclair Broadcasting.

    Major, but understated… – and beating Fiorina to the punch! This guy really knows how to make it happen out there!

    Carson also defended his belief in creationism, telling host Chuck Todd, “I find a very good measure of correlation between my religious beliefs and my scientific beliefs. People say, ‘How can you be a scientist, how can you be a surgeon if you don’t believe in certain things?’ Maybe those things aren’t scientific, maybe it is just propaganda.”

    Despite a career in medicine, Carson, a Seventh-day Adventist, is an outspoken creationist who openly questions evolutionary theory. He also denies that climate change is real, a view that puts him at odds with the vast majority of the scientific community.
