CCV done with Dr. Carson

An Ohio pro-family activist has written off Dr. Ben Carson as someone he can support for president because the retired neurosurgeon has endorsed Ohio Senator Rob Portman's (R) re-election.

Burress

In March 2013, Senator Portman, who was once staunchly pro-family, revealed that his own son is a homosexual and announced his support for "same-sex marriage." That brought a strong reaction from conservatives in Ohio, including Phil Burress, who is chairman of the Citizens for Community Values Action PAC and has vowed to work hard for a Portman GOP primary defeat next year.

But Dr. Ben Carson, who is expected to officially announce his candidacy for president early next month, has officially endorsed Portman's re-election. "I want to see Rob Portman re-elected to the U.S. Senate and encourage Ohio voters to join his campaign and keep the Senate in Republican control," said Carson last weekend.

"That sent shockwaves to the pro-family community, and basically it took him off my list," Burress shares.

And he believes this move will severely damage Dr. Carson's chances of becoming president, "Because if you come out and endorse a candidate who believes in same-sex marriage, then that pretty much puts you into the same camp," he contends.

If he wins the GOP Senate primary, Portman is expected to face a tough challenge from former Democratic Governor Ted Strickland.
