GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson announced changes in his campaign on New Years Eve.

U.S. Army retired Major General Bob Dees was named campaign chairman while Ed Brookover moved from senior strategist to campaign manager.

Carson released the following statement on the reorganization:

As we enter a new phase of the campaign cycle, it is necessary to invigorate my campaign with a strategy that more aggressively shares my vision and world-view with the American people. I commend Barry Bennett and Doug Watts for their efforts to help me share my vision for America.

Over a year ago, hundreds of thousands of Americans encouraged me to listen to the call and seek the office of president of the greatest nation the world has ever known.  I am ready to be president and believe that my unique experience and background is what is needed to heal, inspire and revive America.
