Tea Party favorite Ben Carson plans to air a 40-minute-long ad this weekend introducing himself to the American people, a source told ABC News.
Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, will reportedly air the documentary titled "A Breath of Fresh Air: A New Prescription for America" in 22 states and Washington, D.C.

According to ABC News, the film will highlight the conservative firebrand's childhood and how he transitioned from growing up poor with a single mother to becoming the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins.
Carson acknowledged last month in an interview that he is considering making a bid for the White House in 2016.
"I think I have to consider that," he said, "with so many clamoring for me to do it."
