Examples of Carson in a Sentence

  1. Mel Kiper Jr.:

    A ridiculously stupid move is the way to sum it up ... I think the Colts, a stroke of genius. Maybe it was just because what other teams allowed to happen that they fell into Carson Wentz, and Frank Reich is sitting there saying, ‘Boy, talk about an early Christmas present, or a late Christmas present.’ Whatever you want to talk about, that’s what he got with Carson Wentz.

  2. New Hampshire:

    Who with a 202 (Washington) area code on their cell phone would even think of working for Carson?

  3. Ed Brookover:

    We have to keep doing the same thing. Keep delivering the message that Washington is broken and we need new leaders and you can do that in a way where people are working together and not banging everyone's head together, that's Dr. Carson's style.

  4. Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura:

    He doesn't come from the world of politics. He's also a straight talker. I think Trump/Carson would be a very strong ticket. Beyond that, I would try to find someone outside the discipline of politics.

  5. Ted Cruz:

    Last night when our political team saw the CNN post saying Dr. Carson was not carrying on to New Hampshire and South Carolina, our campaign updated the grassroots leaders just as we would with any breaking news story. That's fair game, what the team should have done is send around the follow-up statement from the Carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race when that came out. That was a mistake from our end, and for that I apologize to Dr. Carson.
