In announcing he will seek the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate from Virginia, outspoken preacher E.W. Jackson said Monday that his chief Republican rival, Corey Stewart, is a tax-and-spend politician who doesn’t understand the threat the country faces from Sharia law and radical Islam.
Jackson joins Stewart and a state lawmaker, Del. Nicholas J. “Nick” Freitas (Culpeper), in the Republican contest for the chance to challenge Sen. Tim Kaine (D), who is seeking reelection to a second term in 2018.
