Celebrated neurosurgeon and conservative darling Ben Carson declared Monday that the “likelihood is strong” that he will make a presidential run in 2016.
Carson told a conservative commentator that if he sees strong support for his candidacy, he will give it his all to win the Republican nomination and the presidential election.
“I know you like debating. And so, the question arises: Will we be seeing you on the presidential debate circuit next year that the Republicans are organizing for those who want the nomination of the party?” the commentator asked Carson during the interview.
Carson replied: “I think the chances are reasonably good of that happening. I’m waiting for a few more months. I want to make sure that it’s clearly something my fellow Americans want me to do. And I’m also waiting to see what the results are in November, because if the people indicate that they truly do want a nation that is for, of and by the people, then I, along with many other people, would be willing to give it everything we possibly have.”
