Florida resident Ben Carson has committed to attend the Republican Party of Florida's Sunshine Summit next weekend in Orlando.

With the event just 9 days away, our grassroots are ready to hear the candidates share their vision for the future of our nation in what will be one of the largest political events in Florida this year.”
