“Dr. Carson, I think you just sent a shiver down the spine of a lot of Republican voters out there….” That was Megyn Kelly’s introduction to an interview with Ben Carson, a potential GOP candidate for president in 2016.
The host of Fox News’ The Kelly File was referring to Carson’s article in National Review explaining his recent speech to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. The retired neurosurgeon who has gained quite a following among conservatives said that he and Sharpton share the same goal for America.
In his interview with Kelly, Dr. Carson explained what he meant, but it was an explanation that might not sit well with those who suspect that Carson could be naive in believing Al Sharpton actually wants for the country what he claims.
Ben Carson has said that he will announce on May 4th in his home town of Detroit his decision about running for the GOP presidential nomination. You can watch the Carson segment on The Kelly File by clicking on the video above.
