The Georgia Senate runoffs are two of the most consequential races this election cycle. Right-wing pastor E. W. Jackson claims, in a new video clip, that they’re consequential not just on a political level, but on a spiritual one.
In a clip captured and shared by Right Wing Watch, Jackson enjoins Georgia voters to cast their ballots for the Republican candidates, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. He maintains that if Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff go to the Senate instead, the consequences will be more than simply flipping the Senate to Democrat-control. The two, he claims, are possessed by demons, and if they win, and go on to represent Georgia in the Senate, the nation will be cursed for it.

If we send those two demonically possessed people, Warnock and Ossoff, if we send them to the United States Senate, we will be cursing our nation. Georgians who are listening to me and watching me right now, we will be cursing our nation if we send those two demonically-possessed people to the United States Senate. And they are demonically-possessed.
Warnock, in particular, has been criticized by right-wing Christians and politicians for saying that he is a pro-choice pastor.
While the two may not take any demons with them to D.C., if they’re both elected, Democrats will control the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the White House all at the same time — which many Republicans seem to find far more frightening than demons. Polls have stayed close, and with the election now only hours away, influencers from all points of the political spectrum are urging their listeners to take a stand.
