Dr. Ben Carson has been a paid contributor on the Fox News channel since October 2013. He has garnered attention in conservative circles due to his strong defense of conservatism as a Black Republican. Now, Dr. Carson has formally ended his role on Fox News while he mulls a possible run for the 2016 GOP Presidential Nomination. Earlier this year, Carson won strong approval from conservatives at the annual convention of the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC). Back in September, he told a talk radio host that he was giving reasonable consideration to a presidential run. At the time, he said additional time would be needed before making his decision.
Brad Reifler thinks the stunning GOP victory earlier this month must have convinced Dr. Carson that the field is ready for a presidential run. His prior work experience centers on his time as a neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital. In addition, he was given the Congressional Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush in 2008. He will still be appearing the Fox News Network, but in the role of a guest as opposed to paid contributor. The Washington Times will soon run a documentary about Dr. Carson which is said to be quite favorable. All things considered, Dr. Carson has not made a decision whether to run at this time. Tyler Harber, a GOP strategist, was more pragmatic about Carson and declared that he will definitely run for the presidency.
