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.Now, here's the real question. (This is Utah, after all.) Will these statements help or hurt the candidate?
"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."
