Ben Carson TV Documentary Set to Air Across Country

Conservative hero Dr. Ben Carson, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, will star in a 40-minute TV documentary about himself that is set to air across the country sometime this weekend, according to ABC News.

An ad for the documentary aired on an ABC affiliate in Washington, D.C., Thursday. The documentary is titled Ben Carson: A Breath of Fresh Air; A New Prescription for America and is produced by a company run by conservative media personality Armstrong Williams. Williams’ company is paying for the airtime.

The ad will air in 22 states, according to ABC News, and will focus on Carson’s life as well as his political philosophy.

Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and outspoken critic of President Obama, has retained a potential 2016 campaign chairman and says he will make a decision on whether he wants to run in May of 2015.

The Washington Times, where Carson is a columnist, first broke the news of the documentary.
