NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFDTV) - Presidential hopefuls made appearances in Iowa for the annual state fair, but RFD-TV is making sure the focus stays on rural America long after the fair. RFD-TV's, RURAL TOWN HALL will spotlight presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson in a one-hour prime-time special premiering on Monday, August 24 at 8 PM ET.

Hosted by RFD-TV’s Mark Oppold, RURAL TOWN HALL participants included constituents from agricultural non-profits and organizations such as the AARP, Iowa Cattlemen's Association, Agriwomen, Future Farmers of America and more. While Dr. Carson covered many topics including social security, taxation and government policies, one theme he stressed throughout the show was unity. 

"For this country to flourish," Carson said, "it needs all the components to be working well – including what’s going on here in the rural setting with our food production. And once we can understand that, we don’t pit people against each other. But we use our collective resources to strengthen everybody.  Because we are supposed to be a country where there is liberty and justice for all."
