Renown surgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson visits east Alabama

EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) -

A world-renown surgeon and, perhaps, future presidential candidate made his way to east Alabama. 

Dr. Benjamin Carson spoke at an event hosted by the Barbour County Republican Club. The event was held at Lakepint Resort in Eufala. 

Some in the Republican Party want Carson to run for President in 2016.

Carson is retiring from the medical profession and has since started a Political Action Committee (PAC). He says he is taking his message across the country.

Carson is best known for being the first doctor to separate conjoined twins.

He was also the subject of an HBO movie.
