Every candidate in the 2016 race so far is an experienced politician. That changes Monday with the addition of two new candidates with little electoral experience: neurosurgeon Ben Carson and former executive Carly Fiorina. Both chose Monday to announce their presidential campaigns, and both face an uphill battle against the GOP establishment.
Carson has confirmed his run with reporters, but the big kickoff will be a rally in Detroit, his hometown, Monday afternoon. Fiorina, meanwhile, is eschewing a big launch in favor of an online rollout, and announced her campaign with a tweet early Monday morning.
The field is expected to grow again on Tuesday when Mike Huckabee—the former Arkansas governor who made a strong showing in 2008, placing third in the Republican primary—makes his decision about a run formal.
