Republican presidential candidate ‘Ben Carson’ has climbed close to the top of the polls (currently in second) in New Hampshire and Iowa, where he’s establishing himself as a serious nominee & threat to other candidates (such as Trump) for the Republican nomination. Carson wants to be taken serious as this is an important presidential race and not to be seen as a reality television star as some of the running candidates have become so to say.
Carson, educated at Yale, is a medical genius and very knowledgeable of the healthcare industry. Carson spoke at the National Prayer Breakfasts in Washington a couple of years ago, where he made a mark by denouncing the health care law and liberal government ideas while standing in the same room as President Obama. It was in 2013, after the remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast, when Carson became an overnight sensation and hero to conservatives. By popular demand of Americans requesting his announce to run for the presidency, he jumped into the race this past Spring and is now gaining Trump in second place in Iowa only a few months later.
