Jackson earned his J.D. from Harvard Law and practiced law for 15 years before becoming a pastor.
According to his website, Jackson's campaign platform includes the following issues:
- Reduce regulation
- Repeal Obamacare
- Constitutional principles
Jackson ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. Senate, representing Virginia. He was seeking the nomination on the Republican ticket and faced George Allen, Jamie Radtke, and Bob Marshall in the June 12, 2012, primary. Jackson was defeated by George Allen in the Republican primary on June 12, 2012.
Allen is considered the front-runner, as he has outraised his Republican challengers and has the benefit of greater name recognition. Jackson is running to the right of Allen, although all four candidates agree on most issues.
The University of Virginia's Center for Politics published an article called Sabato's Crystal Ball on March 22, 2012 detailing the 8 races in the Senate in 2012 that would impact the political fate of which party ended up with control in 2013. The seat rated a toss-up that Sabato's Crystal Ball believed was most likely to depend on the outcome of the Presidential election in November is the Senate seat in Virginia. According to the article, "outcome of this race will largely be determined by which party claims Virginia’s 13 electoral votes in November."
