GOP Senate candidate Hung Cao warns of 'witchcraft' happening in California: 'We can't let that happen in Virginia'
BRYAN METZGERJUL 28, 2023, 02:44 IST


Hung Cao, a Republican running for US Senate in Virginia, warned in an interview this week that "witchcraft" has "taken over" in some parts of California.

According to the Monterey County Historical Society, "Lover's Point" was indeed once known as "Lovers of Jesus Point," owing to its settlement by the Methodist Episcopalian Church in the 1870s.

After losing to Democratic Rep. Jennifer Wexton by less than ten percentage points in 2022, Cao is seeking to take on Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, who's running for a third term.


"There's a place in Monterey, California called 'Lover's Point,'" Cao said. "The original name was 'Lovers of Christ Point, but now it's become — they took out the Christ, it's 'Lover's Point,' and it's really — Monterey's a very dark place now, a lot of witchcraft, and the Wiccan community has really taken over there."


Cao is facing off against several candidates for the Republican nomination for US Senate, including Scott Parkinson, the Vice President of Government Affairs at the conservative Club for Growth and a former top staffer for Ron DeSantis, before he became Governor of Florida.


Aw yes, it's all the big bad wiccans fault...

Does this nutcase think he has a chance in hell of winning in a state like California? No chance in hell.

Wicca is a decentralized, nature-based religion that has no interest in "taking over" anything. This guy needs to do his homework.

Delaney Bramlett, r/e Bonnie, "Only you know and I know"

Parkinson's delusions are probably more dangerous than Hung Cao's!
