Zach Dasher, nephew of Duck Dynasty stars Phil and Silas (Uncle Si) Robertson, will be running for Louisiana’s 5th District Congressional seat to be vacated by Vance McAlister.
Dasher is a pharmaceutical sales rep with no previous political experience. He is running on a family-based, conservative platform.
“I want to help restore this country to what she once was – a nation that builds freedom and prosperity on the anchor of God,” Dasher told the Associated Press. “I got to looking around at the problems in politics today, and what I see in Washington, D.C., is no God. There is no God. The elite political class thinks they can be running our lives. I think there is a vacuum in D.C. of people who understand where rights come from. Rights don’t come from men. They come from God.”
His candidacy is the second in the 5th District to be endorsed by members of the Duck Dynasty cast, the first coincidently being that of McAlister’s, who will be leaving his post after a video surfaced of him making out with a staffer.
