Candy Carson Explains Her Husband's Reasoning for Running in the Presidential Race

Presidential candidate Ben Carson and his wife are Seventh-day Adventists. His wife, Candy Carson, spoke to Newsmax TV about his campaign saying "If someone asked us if we were doing this for ourselves, it would not be worth it. It's for our children, our grandchildren and future generations."

She went on to say that the $19 trillion debt would take 5,000 years to pay off at a rate of $10 million a day.

She explained,"That's hard to comprehend and we're putting this on the backs of our children and grandchildren and their grandchildren. It's not fair to them, and Thomas Jefferson said it's morally wrong to steal from future generations."

She added, "My husband has written 11 policy papers that are on our website to show that he really cares more about getting the job done as opposed to getting into office. It's much more important for us to start talking and thinking about what we're going to do to turn things around because we don't have much longer."
