Richard Carmona Enters the Senate Fray

Posted By on Thu, Nov 10, 2011 at 11:32 AM

Former Surgeon General Richard Carmona, who has been considering a run for Senate for a few months, has decided to run for the seat set to be vacated by Jon Kyl, according to the AP:


The 61-year-old Carmona moved back to Tucson after his surgeon general stint. He says he believes that Washington is broken and noted that his experience as a surgeon and deputy sheriff taught him to work with others to get results.

Carmona describes himself as a fierce independent. He will run against Don Bivens in the Democratic primary.
