Please be in prayer for John Howe and his campaign manager. They were both injured in Carver after the parade we were in. They were in the GOP float and were thrown from the float and there are some serious injuries that have been sustained.

The candidate was sent well-wishes from supporters on Twitter, including a warning from one Republican who suggested he avoid “SJW” doctors.
Be careful that you don’t get SJWs for nurses and doctors! I had a chiropractor give me bad adjustments because of being a Christian conservative.
