WATCH: Senate Candidate Carmona Interviewed On MSNBC About Politicization Of Health Issues

Richard Carmona, the former U.S. Surgeon General who is now running for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jon Kyl, was interviewed Thursday night by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow. Most of the conversation was about the bills currently in the State Legislature regarding abortion and contraception issues, and the candidate explained why he believes restrictive measures would be "deleterious" to women's health and to the goal of reducing unwanted pregnancies.

Carmona also explained that he chose to run for office because he was upset with the politicization of science, health and technology issues, and that he chose to affiliate with the Democratic party because he did not see a home for himself in the Republican party because of those issues and immigration.
