Guthrie County, IA — Republican activists Jon and Rita King have endorsed Dr. Ben Carson for President. They plan to support and work closely with the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee, a political action committee formed to draft Dr. Ben Carson into the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

Jon King, brother to Iowa Congressman Steve King (R) and a longtime grassroots conservative activist, said, “I greatly admire Ben Carson. He has my full support and I think he would make a terrific president. Dr. Carson’s straightforward manner is a breath of fresh air. Our country needs more leaders like him.”

“Dr. Carson is exactly the type of leader our country needs right now,” his wife Rita King continued. “He is a brilliant man, with integrity and the courage to speak the truth. I am thrilled to be part of the Draft Ben Carson movement and I hope he runs for president.”

  1. A breath of fresh air indeed. This country has never seen the likes of Dr. Ben Carson. He’s the kind of man that comes along once in a lfetime…and not a moment too soon. This country is on life supports, and it’s going to take someone of Dr. Carson’s extraordinary intelligence, wisdom, courage and inspiration (he knows all too well what it’s like to be poor, and black, and ignorant) to help right our ship of state. He can assure our allies we’ve got their backs and they’ll believe him; and he can challenge our enemies with steely credibility, as did President Reagan, whose clear determination to defeat them lead to the immediate release of our hostages from Iran, and eventual collapse of the Soviet Union. President Carson would deliver the missile defense system we’d promised Poland (Obama’s cancellaton of which they learned about on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of their country), and promptly approve the Keystone Pipeline if our northern neighbor hasn’t give up on us completely in disgust by then. He’d suggest to Congress that they immediately pass tax reform, including slashing our corporate income taxes that are the highest in the world, and he’d lead a revolt against the teachers unions that have crippled our public education system and restore school choice to parents and children where it belongs (like in Sweden and Canada.) Then on his second day….

  2. If you want to know what things could be like without polarization of politics in Washington, listen to Dr. Carson. He looks at our nations problems honestly, brings forth common sense solutions and seeks to get all parties involved in moving forward. He speaks clearly and honestly. No sugar coating the truth or trying to tell people what they want to hear. Best of all, he will prioritize what problems to address based upon the needs of our country, not on which groups he can placate in order to get future votes. He can also do more than one thing at once!
