Ben Carson Announces for 2016

Ben Carson wants to convince voters that a doctor is best positioned to fix what's ailing America.
He told a crowd in his hometown of Detroit on Monday, making his presidential bid official to wild applause,"I'm Ben Carson, and I'm a candidate for president of the United States."
The retired neurosurgeon and unlikely conservative star signaled that he'll make his medical career and political inexperience a key part of his pitch to voters, telling local news outlet WKRC before his announcement: "I'm not 100 percent sure 'politics as usual' is going to save us."
Carson is so far the only African-American presidential candidate from either party. He cuts an unusual figure for the GOP, but that's part of his appeal for conservatives.
