GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson to answer Arizonans’ questions by phone

Nov 11, 2015, 12:13 PM

PHOENIX — Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson will answer Arizonans’ questions during a telephone town hall meeting Thursday.

The telephone town hall, hosted by the Arizona Security and Prosperity Project, will be moderated by Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, according to a press release.

During the 30-minute call, Carson will answer questions about his campaign, his views on economic development and his, “plan to secure the southern border,” according to the release.

This is the second telephone town hall hosted by the nonprofit featuring a Republican presidential candidate. In October, Carly Fiorina answered questions about border security and economic development.

The Arizona Security and Prosperity Project has invited all major Republican and Democratic candidates to participate in town halls, but only Fiorina and Carson have participated.

The call was scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Arizona time.

Participants can call 855-756-7520 Ext.30460#, according to a Facebook post.

We want to hear from you.
