'Duck Dynasty' Star Urged to Run for Congress

One of the stars of TV’s Duck Dynasty could have a political future–if he wants it.

Some key Republican operatives are eager to woo one of the hit show’s stars–Willie Robertson–to run for the seat given up by retiring Republican Rep. Rodney Alexander….

He represents the 5th District, including Monroe, La., home to the group headed by Robertson, the game call and hunting companies Duck Commander and Buck Commander. Alexander and his staff are also friendly with the Robertson family, especially Willie.

Robertson did not return a request for comment from The Washington Examiner.

The new season of A&E’s Duck Dynasty begins at 10 p.m. EST Aug. 14.
