Prayer breakfast held in Christian nightclub

The Republican National Convention hosted an unconventional prayer breakfast this morning in a Christian nightclub.

Each president since Dwight D. Eisenhower has attended the annual National Prayer Breakfast, which thousands to the event hosted in the Washington D.C. Hilton hotel. Those who attended this morning's breakfast sipped orange juice out of plastic cups and some sat on bar stools in a church called Club 3 Degrees in Minneapolis.

The Christian band Sonicflood performed and former Congressman J. C. Watts addressed a group of a few hundred.

"I've got my slate that I'd love to see win. I'm gonna work to help them win. But you know what, friends, I don't care who your candidate is," Watts said. "If we put our faith in man, I promise you, we're going to be disappointed."
