Wow. It looks like Ben Carson had a YUGE crowd last night in Phoenix, having had to relocate the speech to a larger venue just to accommodate the approximate 12,000 people who showed up to hear him:
AZCENTRAL – Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, speaking Tuesday before a Phoenix crowd larger than the one that turned out weeks ago to hear front-runner Donald Trump, touched on themes of healing the country, following God and bringing authenticity to the race for the White House.
The former neurosurgeon, who has rocketed to near the top of the polls since the first Republican debate earlier this month, spoke to an estimated 12,000 people at the Phoenix Convention Center as they waved campaign signs reading “Heal,” “Revive” and “Inspire.”
Carson acknowledged that until a few weeks ago his had been a long-shot campaign. But like in his career in medicine when he operated on thousands of patients to give them a better life, Carson said he was called by a higher power to enter politics to help others.
“All the pundits say it’s impossible,” Carson said to raucous applause. “I just said, ‘Lord, if you want me to do it, open the doors and I will walk through.’ ”
