Dr Carson Wins Straw Poll


For John, BLUFThe GOP faithful want a winner.  He or she could be purple, if they were seen as a winner.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Listening to Fox News this AM I heard that Dr Ben Carson had one a recent straw poll.  So I checked Memorandum and then The New York Times.  Even Drudge. Nota.  So, to the Fox News website and from there following a link to NewsMax.
Republican presidential candidate and retired pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson on Saturday won the straw poll of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City — beating last year's winner, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
Maybe he won because he is a physician.

It would be interesting if the first Black President whose ties go back to slavery is a Republican.

If only Republicans weren't so tired of "demographically significant" candidates...
