Neurosurgeon and conservative darling Ben Carson has taken another step toward running for president by announcing the formation of a presidential exploratory committee.

Carson is actually one of the first Republicans in the likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate field to form an exploratory committee. Most other candidates have just formed political action committees in preparation for running for president.

If Carson does decide to run for president, Terry Giles, an attorney and Carson's campaign chief executive, will likely manage the campaign. At the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference Carson placed fourth in the CPAC straw poll, behind Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
