Anti-Washington fervor thrusts political outsiders Trump, Carson, Fiorina to prominence
Dr. Ben Carson, a faith-based, pro-life, Second Amendment and flat-tax supporting neurosurgeon opposes Obamacare, and told the massive crowd assembled to hear him speak what is entailed in making America healthy again. He brought his message to an estimated 12,000 attendees who braved the 105° temperatures to hear his message at the Phoenix Convention Center Tuesday. Like the July 11 Trump event, it was moved to the massive venue to accommodate a larger than expected crowd.
The oversized gathering was quite a feat considering the Carson for President campaign lacks a coordinator in Arizona. Like Donald Trump, it used an online invitation service to issue event tickets. In answering audience questions prior to his speech, Carson said his administration’s budget would include “doing whatever was necessary to seal the borders, Southern, Northern, Atlantic and Pacific.” Unlike Trump, however, he opposes mass deportation as an unworkable plan.
Today Carson embarks on a tour of Arizona’s southern border, a major portal for the flood of illegals, drugs, crime and those with terrorist intent, invading the United States. Carson has scheduled a series of public events throughout his visit.
