Minister Asked God About Gubernatorial Run

(Springfield, MA) – Springfield evangelical minister Scott Lively says he did ask God whether he should run for Governor.  Lively tells WMP’s Bill Newman Show, he prayed on the matter, and got the answer that it wasn’t God’s idea, but he had his permission to run.  The Shelburne Falls native says he’s running as an independent for Governor of Massachusetts to challenge the Republican party to stop running RINOs, which means Republican in name only.
