Corrine Brown: Serving in Congress is a ‘calling’

The Lord moves in mysterious ways. And he’s betting on more than one candidate in the Congressional District 5 race.

Earlier in August, Republican nominee Glo Smith told a Baker County crowd that she heard God’s audible voice tell her to run (though apparently not to fundraise yet).

On Thursday, meanwhile, Corrine Brown (who has had some problems with fundraising herself of late) posted an interview to her campaign Facebook page, in which she discussed why she was in Congress.

“When you think about it, it’s like a calling. It’s like being a minister is a calling. Serving is a calling … your job is to help people, and to get things done.”

As of yet, Brown’s primary opponents, Al Lawson and LaShonda Holloway, have yet to link their campaigns to callings from the most high.

However, there are still a few days left before Aug. 30.
