Clearly the knives are out for Ben Carson. As he climbs in the polls, hot on the heels of frontrunner Donald Trump – and is de rigueur for political campaigning – there are those who will attempt to find any bit of mud to sling.
Is this latest discovery mud or just ho-hum? After all, Ronald Reagan was famously a Democrat before he jumped to the Republican camp. Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory made a public splash when he changed his party affiliation and “outed” himself as a conservative in a superb video.
So should we care that Ben Carson only became a Republican six months before announcing his candidacy?
According to The American Mirror, “Carson “did not affiliate with the Republican Party until he changed his voter registration on October 31, 2014.
Carson filed this “record update/change” on that date to change his party affiliation to “Republican Party of Florida” — less than six months before declaring his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president.”
