NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - One of seven candidates vying to become the next mayor of North Miami is claiming the endorsement of none other than Jesus Christ.

Candidate Anna Pierre, who is a registered nurse, told The Miami Herald that Jesus came to her in a dream and provided what she believes is a firm endorsement. The campaign flier posted on her Facebook page reads "Anna Pierre, RN, is endorsed by Jesus Christ" complete with a photo of Jesus.

Earlier in the campaign, Pierre claimed she was the victim of a voodoo attack and death threats. Last week, candidate Jean Marcellus was punched in the face by an acquaintance who didn't want him to run.

Voters go to the polls Tuesday in the North Miami race.
