Reality star Jim Bob Duggar is announcing his candidacy for the state Senate in Arkansas

Duggar, a commercial real estate investor, served in the Arkansas House of Representatives for four years from 1999 to 2002.

“I am running for state senate because these are unprecedented times in our nation,” Duggar said in his statement. “Out-of-control bureaucrats have put policy over common sense policy with government mandates that force people to choose between earning a paycheck and violating their personal rights and beliefs. The fundamental principles that have made our nation great are threatened as never before .”

“Now more than ever we need a bold voice that is pro-family, pro-business, pro-gun and pro-life,” he added. “It’s time for conservatives to demand courageous leadership that puts Arkansas’ families, jobs, and our constitutional freedoms first.”

In 2015, Duggars ‘reality show was canceled in the wake of allegations that Duggars’ eldest son, Joshua Duggar, had insulted girls when he was a teenager. He was never charged with these charges.
Earlier this year, Joshua Duggar was arrested on federal charges related to possession of child pornography. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.
