Mark Harris, former senior pastor at First Baptist Charlotte, is running for the House of Representatives' seat for the 9th Congressional District of North Carolina.

During a panel of candidates at the Values Voter Summit Friday, Harris explained that he saw a spiritual significance to the results of the 2016 election.

"I remember traveling to a number of states and speaking to pastors in different states ... about the importance of the election, getting folks registered to vote. I was so amazed at the number of prayer meetings that were just breaking out all over the country in that fall of 2016," Harris said.

Harris went on to stress the importance of the upcoming midterm elections, calling it a "direction election" that will "set the direction for our country."
