Ben Carson Switches Party from Independent to Republican


Posturing for a run in 2016, or just wanted to do it on election day? We’ll find out.
The Senate wasn’t the only political player bracing for a party switch on Tuesday.
Ben Carson, the pediatric neurosurgeon turned conservative sensation after he confronted President Obama at a prayer breakfast last year, used Election Day to officially change his party affiliation from independent back to Republican, moving yet another step closer to a possible 2016 presidential run.
Mr. Carson, who grew up poor in Detroit and rose to success as a doctor at Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Maryland, made the paperwork change in his new home state of Florida. He filed the paperwork in Palm Beach County.
