Ben Carson to speak in Dayton

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) –  Renowned neurosurgeon and newly-announced presidential candidate, Ben Carson, will be the featured speaker at Dayton Right to Life’s annual fundraiser. The event is September 22 at UD Arena. This week, Carson became one of now six candidates running for the republican presidential nomination.

We asked the executive director of Dayton Right to Life if they anticipated how high-profile their guest may be.

“No, we did not know whether he would be running for president, but I would hasten to add, this is our signature event,” said Paul Coudron. “A pro-life event and our challenge, quite frankly, with the situation being what it is, is to keep it that as opposed to allowing it to become a political event, a Dayton political event.”

The fundraiser is open to the public with a purchased ticket. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
