‘Duck Dynasty's’ Willie Robertson Urged to Run for Congress (Report)

The reality-show star would be a replacement for retiring Republican Rep. Rodney Alexander.

Could Duck Commander Willie Robertson soon be delivering a new kind of duck call — one aimed at his fellow congressmen.

Some Republican operatives are trying to lure Duck Dynasty CEO and "Duck Dynasty" reality-show star Robertson to run for Congress from his home Monroe, La., district as a replacement for retiring Republican Rep. Rodney Alexander.

Alexander is a former Democrat who switched parties in 2004, but his redrawn district is now heavily Democratic.

"My boys want to run Willie Robertson for the seat," the Washington Examiner quoted an adviser to House GOP leadership as saying.

Robertson has repeatedly described himself as a “redneck millionaire.”

Neither Robertson nor A&E, which airs "Duck Dynasty," about to begin its fourth season, immediately responded to requests for comment. Robertson’s "Buck Commander" show airs on the Outdoor Channel.

The web pages for "Duck Dynasty" describes Willie as an avid hunter and a prankster but also the family member with a business and degree.

While Republican operatives would like to get Robertson to run, they are not at all convinced he would be willing to give up his TV shows and his role as the company’s CEO to head to Congress, the Examiner said.

For the record: A previous version of this post misidentified the star of "Duck Commander"

    What’s been seen going on in the church or churches is one of the biggest and most deceitful and fraudulent scams that’s probably ever been seen before.

    The Bible actually calls it treacherous deceit. A cover up, to pillage, deal deceitfully. Do a word search at blue letter bible on the internet. And the only reason it went on as long as it did is because of the people’s generosity, And food intoxication. Either make the tree good and it's fruit good, or make it corrupt and it's fruit will be corrupt. Matt 12:33 LK 6:33

    The church that belittles and makes light of the Law will eventually fall. ECCLESIASTICUS 19:20 How hard is it to make a decent effort? Sounds like the church needs to straighten up before it's found corrupt. Would your contribution to society be to feed hypocrisy? It’s like kindling a fire.

    What value has any church put on the HOLY BIBLE? The good seed. HOW many other books has it encouraged you to read? I’ve seen a lot that have put very little faith in THE HOLY BIBLE. And I’ve already heard how many other books it’s tried to sell you that confirms that. PSALMS 124: 7

    The reason I say that is, some churches take advantage of the people’s desire to worship THE LORD JESUS, and their hopes of salvation. But to them THE LORD JESUS, the HOLY BIBLE and salvation are tools used to lure you to a church. Then the bait and switch takes place . You might want to read a blog.

    When seeking the GOD of compassion, we need a heart of humility ! And the next time you hear a sermon on radio or tv ask yourself a question. What does he know that he’s keeping from other’s. And here's a little study for the religious, what is the meaning of the word sarcophagi, sarcophagus , whitewashed, Matt 23: 27

    The Old Testament sacrifices were symbolic of what all would be called to do. Have you ever noticed that when some churches try to make light of or belittle the Law it runs to the letters of paul ?

    And you probably never thought about why did you ? No one who hates the Law is Wise. Would you like to know what you’re not being told ? Especially if you attend church.

    Read a blog. type blog, youneed toread, type as 2 words critical. Some people have missed the message of the cross and the washing of the feet. And if you can grasp that then you know why. Have you ever heard the church speak about a rapture? Paul thought he would be alive when it was to take place. But he died waiting for it. Hopefully you won't.

    The church has said that a true prophet must be 100% accurate 100% of the time. Seems that was something else paul and the church missed ?

    OR did they ? Paul also spoke about a lot of unpredictable afflictions. Now what would be the significance of all the healings that took place on the Sabbath IN THE Gospel’s?

    Suffering is a call to repent not the results of repentance. Paul’s suffering was the results of his own disobedience. Click on user name for more.

    A word to the republican operatives: the Robertson family is off-limits. They are a family with their own family business and the last thing they need is corrupted politicians coming to horde in on their turf. Probably the operatives are doing it because the whole country watches nothing but Duck Dynasty and their family values and it is making the country more and more family-oriented and moral than the rest of the country. That's probably why they're going after Willie or any member from the family. Their looking for a way to break the family of their ways. You can't do that. You don't do that. Politician or not, you don't break apart a family just because they're something your not. That's a good way to get yourself disowned by your own family or any other's. It can also get you fired, put in jail, your feelings hurt. There are certain things in this world that you don't do or say, no matter how much you want to. You leave people as they are and the way they want to be.
