Several potential Republican presidential hopefuls attended the meeting last week of 200-plus political activists hosted by the conservative Koch brothers in Palm Springs, Calif.

Among those attending the two-day conclave were Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky and — most interestingly — Dr. Ben Carson.

The Baltimore physician became an overnight conservative “rock star” earlier this year when he criticized administration economic policies in front of President Barack Obama during the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C.

In March, Carson electrified his audience with a fighting speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference and has done nothing to dampen talk of a White House bid in 2016.

Maryland Republicans still hope the physician-politician will seek a lower office such as the governorship in 2014.
