Last night, Louisiana businessman Vance McAllister won a runoff election for a vacant House seat in the state’s 5th Congressional District. McAllister—a Republican who leans slightly to the left of opponent Neil Riser, takes a slightly more pragmatic take on the Affordable Care Act than his opponent or Gov. Bobby Jindal, and speaks of never having visited Washington D.C.—did not have backing from the Republican establishment or from tea party groups like FreedomWorks. One thing McAllister did have, however, was endorsements from two “Duck Dynasty” stars, including Willie Robertson, shown above. (The show and its ratings-friendly family are based in the district.) The reality TV scheme appeared to have worked—despite being outspent big time, McAllister won handily, scoring 60 percent of the vote.
