Carson PAC pushes for VP slot
A super-PAC supporting Ben Carson says the Republican presidential candidate needs to be on the ticket, “even as our vice presidential nominee,” for the GOP to have a shot at winning the White House.
John Philip Sousa IV, chairman of The 2016 Committee, argued in a Thursday email to supporters that Carson is the Republican Party’s only hope of appealing to minority voters.
“By fighting on, there is always the possibility that Ben Carson will once again become resurgent,” Sousa said. “But, even if that does not happen, by keeping his hat in the ring, it increases the odds that he will be chosen as the vice presidential candidate of the GOP in 2016.
“And, with Dr. Carson on the ticket, we will win in a landslide that will drive far left radicals like Obama, Clinton, and Sanders out of the political mainstream.”
