Tonight's Topic: EW Jackson being blasted by liberals because of his Christian Values
- What really happened at the 2013 Republican State Convention held in Virginia?
- U.S. identifies five men in Benghazi embassy attack, but lack evidence for trial
- Nation's Woes continue to grow and Obama Admin seemingly has handle on redirecting the anger
Jackson, the founder of a nondenominational church, is a former Marine and graduate of Harvard Law School. But he is rapidly becoming known for a raft of controversial statements that have bubbled up online in the wake of his surprise victory on Saturday. He has publicly questioned President Barack Obama’s faith and has been spearheading efforts to recruit black Democrats to the GOP since last year, when he unsuccessfully ran for Senate in Virginia.
“Shame on us for allowing ourselves to be sold to the highest bidder. We belong to God,” he said in the video. “Our ancestors were sold against their will centuries ago, but we’re going through the slave market voluntarily today.”
As lieutenant governor, Jackson would hold the tie-breaking vote in what is currently an evenly divided state Senate. Republicans currently hold the lieutenant governorship and control of the 40-seat body. But with the unpolished Jackson as the GOP nominee, Democrats are now a safe bet to pick up the lieutenant governor’s office and control of the senate.
