Rep. Vance McAllister (R., La.)
Associated Press

Rep. Vance McAllister, the married congressman who was caught on video kissing one of his staffers, plans to run for re-election this fall, he announced Monday.

Mr. McAllister said during an interview on the conservative Moon Griffon radio show he is “absolutely” running. In April, weeks after the video was released, the congressman said he wouldn’t seek re-election but would serve out the remainder of his term, following calls for his resignation from fellow Louisiana Republicans.

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - The nephew of "Duck Dynasty" reality TV personality Phil Robertson said on Monday he would run for the U.S. House of Representatives in northeastern Louisiana as a conservative Republican.

The entry of 36-year-old political newcomer Zach Dasher into the race for the seat of Representative Vance McAllister, who was rocked by a sex scandal earlier this year, will test the Robertson clan's clout in Louisiana's largely rural 5th District.

"My basic platform begins with God," Dasher said in a phone interview.

Before he scandalized the nation by getting caught making out with a staffer, conservative Louisiana Representative Vance McAllister was best known for bringing one of the Duck Dynasty guys to President Obama's 2014 State of the Union Address.
