In an effort to shamelessly court the black voting bloc, Beto O’Rourke graced The Potter’s House with his presence, and Pastor TD Jakes did a photo op with the Democrat gubernatorial candidate. The photo taken gives the impression of an endorsement, although no official statement has been made to that.
It was an honor to be welcomed into The Potter’s House by Bishop T.D. Jakes. Thank you for having me at this morning’s service in Dallas. pic.twitter.com/DlM8sz40tQ— Beto O'Rourke (@BetoORourke) October 23, 2022
The photos O’Rourke touts took place approximately 40 minutes before the sermon. So the empty appearance of the auditorium was eventually short-lived, making The Potter’s House not a Ghost Megachurch.
Beto O’Rourke gets some street cred from America’s arguably most popular pastor in an otherwise struggling campaign.
