Carson Campaign Spending Considerable Time in State Over Next Week
GOP Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is making a strong push to win the upcoming South Carolina primary on February 20th, and the campaign will be spending considerable time in the state over the next two weeks to let voters know that they have until January 20th to get registered to vote in the Primary.
Dr. Carson will be participating in the next GOP Presidential debate on Thursday, January 14th in North Charleston at the Coliseum and Performing Arts Center. The debate will be significant because only the top six GOP candidates are participating, including Dr. Carson.
On Monday, January 18th, Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, Dr. Carson will be participating in a campaign event in Myrtle Beach. Later that day he will be a guest at The Conservative Leadership Project at Brookland Baptist Church and will be having a conversation with Attorney General of South Carolina Alan Wilson. Dr. Carson’s wife, Candy Carson, will be at Brookland Baptist Church all day for MLK Day events. She will be a guest that morning at the Columbia Urban League Annual MLK Breakfast which starts at 7:30 a.m.
The campaign has also been running advertisements on African American gospel-focused stations all month in South Carolina encouraging voters to make sure they get registered by January 20th to vote in the Primary. The radio spot features Dr. Alveda King who is a niece of Dr. King, and is well known throughout the state for her ministry and service to the community. In the inspirational advertisement she encourages residents of South Carolina to “Pray for Ben Carson”.
The Carson campaign is encouraging voters to go to the Website ‘Can I Vote’ (http://www.canivote.org/) to check their registration status. The site will also provide South Carolina residents with the location of the Polling Place of where to vote.
