One of Those "Screw-Loose People"

Back in May at the Utah Republican Convention, five-term Congressman Chris Cannon was forced into a June primary election with political novice John Jacob. As the primary approaches, Jacob's inner wingnut seems to have fully surfaced.

According to an article in today's Salt Lake Tribune:
As if beating a five-term congressman wasn't hard enough, John Jacob said he has another foe working against him: the devil.

"There's another force that wants to keep us from going to Washington, D.C.," Jacob said. "It's the devil is what it is. I don't want you to print that, but it feels like that's what it is."

... Asked if he actually believed that "something else" was indeed Satan, Jacob said: "I don't know who else it would be if it wasn't him. Now when that gets out in the paper, I'm going to be one of the screw-loose people."
Now, here's the real question. (This is Utah, after all.) Will these statements help or hurt the candidate?
