Carson speaks at an event in Fajardo

Though well-known in Baltimore, Ben Carson kept his politics to himself

Carson speaks at an event in FajardoBy Emily Flitter BALTIMORE (Reuters) – For many who knew Ben Carson in Baltimore, his U.S. presidential candidacy comes as a surprise.     Over more than three decades as a Baltimore resident ending in 2013, Carson – now a front-runner in the race for the Republican Party nomination – rarely spoke about his political views. An unassailable local hero, a Johns Hopkins Hospital neurosurgeon, Carson put his wealth to use helping the poor. For American voters disdainful of gridlock in Washington, Carson’s apolitical background has been a breath of fresh air, especially given his rags-to-riches success story, and it may explain why he has vaulted to the top of opinion polls.
