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.
"If Ben Carson is on the ticket, either as president or as vice president, we can win the White House by winning upwards of 25% of the black vote and 35% of the Hispanic vote," Sousa wrote. "That translates into a Republican landslide and a dominant Republican majority for years to come.
"And, the good news is that even today, Dr. Carson is the near universal choice of a vast majority of Republicans for the number two spot on the Republican ticket."
You'd have to be an idiot to let Ben Carson on your ticket which means he's a shoo-in for the slot this year.
