Making Moves: Ben Carson Looks Like He's Running For President

Posted: Nov 07, 2014 12:00 PM

Now that the 2014 midterms are over get ready for 2016, because the race for the White House is already here. 

Dr. Ben Carson, who became a conservative phenomenon after giving a speech at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast, has officially changed his voter registration from Independent to Republican and he's released a video to prove it. 

Hmmm now why would he do that? Since his debut at the prayer breakfast, where he focused much of his time on Obamacare, Carson has appeared on Fox News to discuss a range of topics and government policies. He's also written a number of books throughout his life. 

According to The Hill, Carson will air an "introduction" video this weekend in 22 different states.

Ben Carson is introducing himself as a potential 2016 presidential candidate in a 40-minute video that will be aired on TV stations in 22 states and Washington, D.C.

Armstrong Williams, a conservative commentator who is Carson’s business manager, is behind the video, entitled: “A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America.”

And Allahpundit points out that Dr. Carson has been raking in some major cash from grassroots donors. 

As of mid-October, the Draft Ben Carson for President PAC had drawn $10.6 million in donations, among the biggest hauls of any PAC this year. And they didn’t do it with mega-millions gifted to them by billionaires; 90 percent of their haul came from small donors.
It's no secret that Carson might throw his hat in the ring for 2016, but he's certainly taking more obvious steps toward that goal as declaration time gets closer. The first Republican primary debate is set for September 2015 at the Reagan Library in California.
