Ben Carson forms presidential exploratory committee | Fox News
I didn't really expect Carson to run. But from the look of this it sounds like he is actually extremely likely to make the attempt. I guess that makes sense considering he's hovering in 2nd or 3rd place in the polls though. I still find it extremely unlikely he'll win the nomination with his lack of political and campaign experience.Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson has filed paperwork to create a presidential exploratory committee, making him the first high-profile Republican candidate to begin raising money for a potential White House bid.
Carson filed the paperwork with the Federal Election Commission late Monday.
“For the next few months, Dr. Carson looks forward to listening to the American people to gauge support for a presidential candidacy,” said Terry Giles, who was recently named campaign chairman. “Obviously, this is a very big step.”
