• Ben Carson’s Closing Statements At The GOP Debate Brought Down The House

    Dr. Ben Carson offered a powerful closing statement as Thursday’s Republican primary GOP debate came to a close.

    He poked fun at his fellow candidates who struggled to fit their accomplishments into their closing statements.

    Carson was the only non-politician on the stage during the debate besides Donald Trump, so he couldn’t point to a long political resume. He instead cited his medical accomplishments.

    “I haven’t said anything about me being the only one to do anything, so let’s try that.” Carson said. “I’m the only one to separate Siamese twins. The only one to operate on babies while they were still in their mother’s womb. The only one to take out half of a brain, although you would think if you went to Washington that someone had beat me to it. But I’m very hopeful that I’m not the only one who will pick up the torch of freedom. Because freedom is not free.”

    He received a wide range of applause and laughs, and then took a more serious tone.

    “But I am very hopeful that I am not the only one who is willing to pick up the baton of freedom. Because freedom is not free and we must fight for it every day. Everyone of us must fight for it because we are fighting for our children and the next generation.”

    Carson was the 5th highest ranked GOP candidate in national polls heading into the debate.
