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. “I want to go to D.C. to restore America to what she once was.”

Dasher, who is on leave from his sales job at a pharmaceutical company, said he was running with the full backing of his family members made famous by the A&E program “Duck Dynasty,” based on their business selling duck hunting supplies.

“Uncle Phil said he’s vetted me for 36 years,” Dasher said.
