Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt suggested on April 26 that people should pray about who to vote for president, and God may pick the correct candidate (video below).
At the beginning of the segment, guest Candace Cameron Bure was asked by "Fox & Friends" co-host Steve Doocy what she thought would help the Republicans get behind a single candidate, notes RawStory.com.
Bure, who recently starred in the "Full House" sequel, "Fuller House," replied:
You know, I don’t know what it’s going to take, I'm not a political expert, but I’m an American and I hold conservative values, and I think at the end of the day, I realize I put my faith in Jesus Christ, not in any one person. And whoever becomes our candidate, our nominee and eventually our president, I will pray for them and support that they make the best decisions for our country.
In response, Earhardt asked Bure: "I know your faith is important to you as it is to many of us and many of our viewers. Do you feel like in this election, we just pray about it and give it to God? And God’s going to pick the right candidate or how do we go into this as a Christian?"
The current presidential candidates have been running for office for about a year, but Bure said that she has not chosen one yet.
"I think it's our duty to still go to the polls, even if ultimately I'm not satisfied with the candidate, I'm still going to go in and vote," she said. "And I don’t know who I’m going to vote for at this point, I honestly don't, but I will pray about the decision of who I’ll vote for."
Bure went on to say that having so many candidates "hurt us to this point," prompting Doocy to ask Bure if she was referring to the Republican Party, which she confirmed. Doocy then asked Bure if she has voted for a Democrat in the past.
"I haven't, no," Bure replied. "Because fiscally and politically, I hold conservative values so I haven't but, you know, I'm really looking at everyone this year, I gotta tell ya, I am."
About News reported on April 21 that when it comes to fiscal spending, every president in modern history has raised the national debt, except for Presidents Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge; the U.S. debt began in 1789.
