Ben Carson: ‘Strong Likelihood’ I’ll Run in 2016

Ben Carson said he is leaning toward seeking the Republican presidential nomination and will make a decision as late as May 2015, Time reported.

The retired pediatric neurosurgeon made the comments in an interview with Hugh Hewitt, the conservative radio host. Carson said he wanted time to consult with an array of advisers after seeing the outcome of the 2014 midterm elections.

“Unless the American people indicate in November that they like big government intervention in every part of their lives, I think the likelihood [of a presidential run] is strong.”
