A relative of the Duck Dynasty reality show clan is announcing his candidacy for the 5th district congressional seat this November. Zach Dasher is the nephew of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson.
You may recall the Robertsons were behind Vance McAllister, who’s the incumbent, but McAllister has been in the midst of a domestic scandal.
Dasher is a Republican and says he has a background in the pharmaceutical industry, real estate and fundraising for non-profits.
Meanwhile, the man who came in number 2 in the last congressional race, Senator Neil Riser of Columbia, tells the Morning Advocate Capitol Bureau he will not be a candidate this time.
