BATON ROUGE, La. (WGNO) – A man with a “Duck Dynasty” connection could be representing Louisiana’s 5th District in congress. On Monday, Zach Dasher announced he is running for a seat in the November 4th election.

Dasher’s uncle is the TV family patriarch Phil Robertson.

Dasher, who is from Calhoun, Louisiana, says he has the support of his family including his famous uncle and cousins.

The district’s current congressman, Vance McAllister, announced in April he will not be seeking reelection.

Earlier this year, McAllister was caught on his office security footage kissing a married woman who worked in his office.

In the strange world of politics McAllister won the seat last year with support of the “duck dynasty” family.
