Ben Carson tells TV station he'll seek GOP presidential nomination


Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson told a Florida television station on Sunday that he is running for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. "I'm willing to be part of the equation and, therefore, I'm announcing my candidacy for president of the United States of America," Carson said in an interview with CBS affiliate WPEC-TV in West Palm Beach, Florida. Carson, 63, who is popular with the Tea Party movement, is expected to formally declare his candidacy at an event in Detroit today.
