Former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson was in Cape Coral, Florida endorsing former Ambassador Francis Rooney’s newly minted congressional campaign.Rooney along with Dan Bongino and Chauncey Goss are vying to replace outgoing Congressman Curt Clawson (R) in Florida’s 19th congressional district.
After addressing about 400 Republican voters, both Rooney and Carson spoke to reporters. Carson understandably took the brunt of the question, especially those that had to do with national politics, including those asked of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Carson was asked if he vision of America was any different than that of Donald Trump’s.
Carson said that the two visions are “very similar,” and that he and Trump had “very different personalities” before reiterating that their views were “really quite similar.”
When asked if he was giving Trump “guidance” on his speech deliver, a smirking Carson stated, “I think we can all use some coaching in that area.”
