Fight for growing Pentecostal vote in Brazil

In this Sept.25, 2014 photo, a banner with the face of the Pentecostal pastor Silas Malafaia, right, and the political candidate Sostenes Cavalcante, is placed on the sidewalk in front of Assemblies of God church, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Malafaia who supports fellow coreligionist and presidential challenger Marina Silva, is part of a rapidly swelling movement that is strongly rooted among poorer Brazilians, a group that otherwise heavily favors presidential Incumbent Dilma Rousseff’s Workers Party, which has lifted millions from poverty with expansive social welfare programs and the creation of millions of new jobs.
