Dr. Ben Carson jumped into the 2016 presidential race Monday, pitching himself to the American public as the anti-Washington insider.
“I gotta tell you something: I’m not politically correct. I’m not gonna be politically correct because I’m not a politician and I don’t wanna be a politician,” he told the crowd to big cheers in his hometown of Detroit.
Carson, an African-American, has become a celebrity among conservative circles not only for his blunt rhetoric, but also because of his personal story of overcoming obstacles in order to become a world renowned doctor.
