The notion Dr. Carson could draw in more black voters is a strong reason in support for
choosing him, but it certainly needn’t be the only reason. No one is perfect, especially in politics. There are other top-tier contenders for President Trump’s running mate, but whether by virtue of already running in another race, or being from the same state as Trump and thus constitutionally ineligible, many other “perfect” choices will always be just out of reach. A Trump/Carson ticket, however, comes as close to perfect as you can get.
