The National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee, an independent political action committee formed to draft the retired neurosurgeon and author has opened a 1,700-square-foot “Draft Ben Carson for President Victory Center” in Manchester, New Hampshire.
“New Hampshire will be a key early proving ground for Dr. Carson should he answer the American people’s call for him to run for president,” said John Philip Sousa IV, national chairman for the Draft Committee.
“New Hampshire will be a key early proving ground for Dr. Carson should he answer the American people’s call for him to run for president,” says national chairman John Philip Sousa IV, adding that the new center will serve as a home base and resource. They appear to be just getting started, though.
“The New Hampshire Victory Center is just the beginning,” says campaign director Vernon Robinson. “We have plans to continue to open offices across the country focusing on early primary states.”
Dr. Carson himself founded a federal political action committee called USA First PAC in September with a pledge “to support restorative political candidates.” Among those he supported in the midterms: Senators-elect Joni Ernst of Iowa and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina
