The deep Republican presidential field will get even more competitive this week when hopefuls Dr. Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee enter the race as expected. Carson and Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive, are set to announce today, making them the only black and female candidate, respectively, so far in the 2016 GOP field. Carson will announce his bid in hometown Detroit. Fiorina, who has positioned herself as an alternative to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, will make her announcement on social media, then follow with an online townhall event.
