Carson will have a rally at Cedarville Univestity in Greene County at 2 p.m. at the univesity's Dixon Ministry Center, 251 N. Main St. in Cedarville.

Carson will end the day as the keynote speaker at Dayton Right to Life's Viva La Vita event at the University of dayton Arena. That event starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are required. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or the University of Dayton ticket office.

Mark Caleb Smith, associate professor of political science at Cedarville, is not surprised Carson is near the top in the polls.

"Dr. Carson has the benefit of being an outsider, but he is also overtly religious and has a compelling story," Smith said. "He also provides some diversity for the GOP. All that helps."

Smith said students at Cedarville are excited about Carson's visit Tuesday.

"Students are thrilled. They are aware and expectant. I think he will find a friendly audience here at Cedarville University."

We will have coverage of Carson's events at Cedarville and in Dayton on Tuesday. Get the latest on our new Ohio Politics Facebook page and follow our team on Twitter at @Ohio_Politics
