Ben Carson will make a major announcement on his 2016 presidential-campaign plans in three weeks, CNN reported Monday night, citing a spokeswoman.

But while the network reported that the speech will be made May 4 in Detroit, spokeswoman Deanna Bass cautioned that her boss, the first major Republican to start a presidential exploratory committee back in February, may either run or not run.

“He will make an announcement. But he’s still very much in the exploratory phase, so he hasn’t made a decision yet,” Ms. Bass told the network.

Mr. Carson, 63, would be entering a field becoming increasingly crowded with tea party favorites such as himself. Sens. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio already have officially tossed their hats into the ring.
