Dr. Ben Carson would “relish” the opportunity to take on Hillary Clinton—whom he dubbed the “poster child” of dishonesty—in a general election.

On Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, Carson, who is now the frontrunner in Iowa, told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that a contest versus Clinton would be the “most clear-cut election in history.”

He said Hillary Clinton’s campaign would be about the the “usual tax and spend, promise them everything, give them nothing policies.”

Carson also said a potential general election battle with Clinton would also allow him to “demonstrate to people the whole concept of dishonesty.”

“She’s the poster child for that,” Carson said.

A majority of Americans in numerous polls do not believe that Clinton is honest or trustworthy, and Carson said that he hopes he has been rising in the polls because “people are recognizing that I’m consistent and I’m truthful and I’m one of them.”

He added that he would also relish a general election matchup versus Clinton because “it would give me an opportunity to really explain to people what the impact is of the incredible amount of debt that has been piled on during the Obama administration,” especially the “deleterious impact” the country’s debt “has on savings and increasing one’s wealth.”
