HB Charles Announces Intention to Nominate R. Albert Mohler, Jr. President of the Southern Baptist Convention (Updated)

In a Twitter thread, pastor HB Charles, Jr. announced his intention to nominate R. Albert Mohler, Jr. for President of the Southern Baptist Convention.
I’m delighted to announce my prayerful intention to nominate Albert Mohler as our next SBC president when we gather together in Orlando in June 2020 for our annual meeting. Our times are filled with serious challenges from our culture, along with as incredible opportunities for gospel witness. I believe Albert Mohler is the statesman leader we need at this precise moment. He’s a proven leader in our convention, capable of uniting us behind our shared commitment to biblical truth and the urgency of the Great Commission. At this hour, it’s crucial that Southern Baptists come together. We need the conviction to stand boldly for Christ. We need the zeal to mobilize our resources to spread the gospel. We must do so together. I believe Albert Mohler is the man to lead us forward in that unity.
Update:
Al Mohler replied to Charles in a tweet.
Thank you for your confidence, H.B. I would be honored to serve Southern Baptists in any way, and would do anything I can to lead and serve faithfully and well.
