Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is reportedly launching a new campaign to attract evangelical voters. The New York Times reports Carson will hold a news conference Wednesday (Dec. 2) on the new campaign, which his team is calling an “Evangelical Rollout.” 

 

According to Carson’s spokesperson, the Evangelical Rollout is intended “for a number of pastors to announce their endorsement for the campaign.” 

 

Republican candidate Donald Trump hosted a similar event on Monday with a group of black pastors and community leaders. The event was originally called an endorsement announcement before Trump’s campaign clarified that it was a private meeting. 

 

According to the latest Quinnipiac poll, Carson’s evangelical support has fallen behind Trump and Ted Cruz who are leading with a tie of 24 percent. Carson claims the support of 19 percent of evangelical voters.
