NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFDTV) - Members of the Iowa Future Farmers of America (FFA) were on hand during RFD-TV's RURAL TOWN HALL with Dr. Ben Carson. The 2016 presidential hopeful met with and answered questions posed by FFA members and his support of young people in agriculture.

"You know my whole life has been centered-around young people," Dr. Carson explained. "And the only reason that I’ve actually gotten into this race is because I couldn’t settle down and put my feet up and relax knowing that their future was in jeopardy. And I think when it comes to young people on the farm, we need to provide for them the kind of educational tools that are essential."

Watch Dr. Carson's complete answer in the video above and find out more about his platform on RURAL TOWN HALL.
