By The 2016 Committee, Special for USDR
The 2016 Committee, a political action committee raising awareness and support for Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, congratulates Dr. Carson for winning the Republican presidential straw poll at the Washington State Fair on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015.
“Washington is a traditionally liberal state, and Dr. Carson’s strong showing in a host of polls there demonstrates his broad appeal to a diverse Republican party,” said John Phillip Sousa IV, chairman of The 2016 Committee. “His ability to connect with Republican voters across the country and from a wide range of backgrounds and opinions illustrates that he is the best person to heal America and put our country back on the right track.”
Dr. Carson finished the Washington State Fair GOP straw poll in first place with 38.5 percent of the votes, earning nearly twice the support of the second-place finisher. The poll was conducted by the Pierce County Republican Party. Carson also won statewide straw polls conducted by the Washington State Republican Party in 2014 and 2015.
