Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker sent an email to his supporters on Monday describing his recently announced campaign for the White House as part of God’s plan.

The 47-year-old second-term Republican governor said in a fundraising email sent by the “Scott Walker for America” campaign that his decisions were driven by his faith in God, reported Right Wing Watch.

“My relationship with God drives every major decision in my life. Each day I pray and then take time to read from the Bible and from a devotional named Jesus Calling,” the email said.

“As you can imagine, the months leading up to my announcement that I would run for President of the United States were filled with a lot of prayer and soul searching.”

“Here’s why: I needed to be certain that running was God’s calling — not just man’s calling. I am certain: This is God’s plan for me and I am humbled to be a candidate for President of the United States,” Walker said in the email.

The GOP presidential candidate went on to tout his anti-abortion record and decry the Supreme Court’s historic marriage equality ruling.

“Our U.S. Constitution calls for freedom of religion, not freedom from religion,” he said. “The founders of this exceptional country took religious freedom very seriously and we must redouble our efforts to protect these freedoms today.”

Trump announced that he had issued an executive order on Hong Kong as he predicted decline for the restless city, on which Beijing recently imposed a tough new security law.

With 100% of polling locations reporting, though some mail-in ballots will still need to be counted, Jackson held a lead of 11 percentage points over Josh Winegarner, a veteran agriculture expert and lobbyist. Jackson and Winegarner were competing for a seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Clarendon, who is retiring and held the seat since 1995.
