Dr. Ben Carson Leads Christian Get-Out-the-Vote

Retired neurosurgeon, Ben Carson, called an end to his presidential bid and simultaneously the non-profit organization My Faith Votes announced that he will chair the group.
“I believe Christians in this country can easily determine the next president of the United States and all other national and local leaders, should they simply show up at the polls. When we do vote, We The People will once again solidify our commitment to the Judeo-Christian values upon which our nation was founded.”
-- Dr. Ben Carson, former 2016 GOP presidential candidate

-- From "Ben Carson ends campaign, will lead Christian voter group" by Tal Kopan, CNN 3/4/16

The tax-exempt nonprofit educational group [My Faith Votes] says it will undertake a national media campaign that will gather steam into the November presidential election.

"In the last four presidential elections, an average of less than five million votes separated the major candidates." My Faith Votes President Sealy Yates, said in a statement. "Yet, more than 25 million Christians didn't bother to even show up at the polls in 2012."

The group said Carson agreed to take on the position the same day he announced he could not see a "path forward" for his presidential campaign on Wednesday. He did not participate in the GOP debate on Thursday.

Asked if the new job would preclude him from endorsing a fellow candidate, Carson confidante and business manager Armstrong Williams said he was "never" going to endorse a candidate.

From "Ben Carson launches new campaign to convince Christians to vote after quitting presidential race" by Lorraine Caballero, The Christian Times 3/7/16

While Carson's new group is non-partisan and non-denominational, he will focus on campaigning to convince Christians to use their power to vote, My Faith Votes' spokesman Johnnie Moore explained. In an email, Moore also said the organization's central cause is to remind people of faith of their moral responsibility to vote by tapping televangelists, local preachers, radio personalities, and even YouTube. The organization is also planning to talk to Catholic leaders next.
