Carly Fiorina, former CEO of tech giant, Hewlett Packard, Ben Carson, illustrious pediatric neurosurgeon and former Governor Mike Huckabee are throwing their hats into the Republican presidential race.
Fiorina, once named the most powerful woman in business by “Fortune” magazine, is remembered in California for her senate bid in 2010 to unseat incumbent Barbara Boxer. Ben Carson is African-American and was born poor to a single mother. He went on to graduate from Yale and University of Michigan medical school, rising to the position of director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Former Governor Mike Huckabee is known to be popular with the evangelical right.
Do any of these candidates have a shot at breaking away from the pack?
