FILE - In this Sept. 5, 2005, file photo, U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona, center, addresses the media after touring the shelter for victims of Hurricane Katrina at the convention center in downtown Dallas. Arizona voters have now seen Carmona in combat fatigues, in a surgeon’s mask and gown, wielding a pistol as a swat team member and most recently dangling from a helicopter during a medical rescue. They’ve also seen him described as President Barack Obama’s personal recruit to serve as the next U.S. senator from Arizona. “Richard Carmona, Barack Obama’s rubberstamp,” says a recent ad from Republican nominee Jeff Flake.
