The first paid advertising of the 2016 race is upon us – well, sort of.

Conservative Armstrong Williams, who is the business manager to likely Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, has produced a one-hour documentary on Carson, and Armstrong bought air time Nov. 8-9 in select markets across the country.
