Duck Dynasty-endorsed Republican wins La. House seat

By PAUL BEDARD | NOVEMBER 17, 2013 AT 1:03 PM

An unknown political novice who has never visited Washington, D.C., won a special election for Louisiana's 5th District seat Saturday on the endorsement of the “Duck Dynasty” family and a promise to fix Obamacare.

Vance McAllister beat establishment candidate Neil Riser, a state senator, in Saturday's runoff election created when former Rep. Rodney Alexander resigned on September 26 to become secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs under Republican Governor Bobby Jindal.

He told local KNOE TV that “Washington may not be ready for me.”

In the race, McAllister, a businessman in the Monroe, La., area, self-funded most of his campaign. He is a friend of the patriarch of TV’s “Duck Dynasty,” Phil Robertson, who endorsed his congressional bid.

A handful of Washington GOP operatives tried to get one of the members of the Duck Dynasty family to run for the seat, but failed.

But the race showed just how powerful the Duck Dynasty trademark is in the area, said an election observer.

It's all about reducing the footprint and if you can some poor guys share then that's how the capitalist system works. He uses it to perfection!

"carbon credits" are a scam sold to rich liberal pigs and don't do a damn thing for the environment....

Political newcomer Vance McCallister (R) has defeated the TeaParty/Jindall backed candidate for the vacant Louisiana US House seat in a runoff.
McCallister, a businessman had the backing the "Duck Dynasty" family.
With his approval rating at below 30% Jindall has slipped off the national political stage.

Wrong again dumbass! The ACA grandfathered policies written before the law was enacted, even the crappy ones. It was the insurance industry vultures that conned their subscribers into new policies that they knew weren't in compliance and would have to be cancelled.

the Anti-American Communist Act (ACA) is screwing Americans out of their insurance....

Expanding Medicare under Obamacare might be a noble cause if we weren't so far in over our heads now and could afford to provide free health care to millions of people without overburdening a significant number of other people with higher premiums who can't afford it either.
Just one example of the ones benefiting most from Obamacare are women who have 15 babies with 6 different fathers who say, "somebody's gonna have to pay for all these babies."
She may not represent the truly needy but she does represent what's terribly wrong with big government wanting to provide permanent lifestyles of dependency.
The leader of the UK, Cameron, just made a speech recently encouraging strong work ethics and self-reliance to be celebrated beginning in the public schools.
We need a leader saying that here too.
Aside from White Octomom, how commin are women with 15 babies?
You are seriously whack.
Medicare is not free.
Liberals wanted Medicare for all, but compromised
by copying conservative Heritage planfor healthcare overhaul that was a success in Mass.

The main reason I have a deep-seated mistrust, not hatred, towards this president is because I knew this country could never be blessed if our leader had such a disregard towards the sanctity of human life that he could callously deny a born alive botched abortion baby medical care. Not voting to allow medical care is the same as voting no to allowing medical care.
The other reasons should be obvious...his lack of real-world life experiences, a lack of real-world leadership experiences, the total disconnect to understanding what makes this country tick, and shady and corrupt affiliations had a lot to do with it.
The fact he was voted by a nonpartisan organization to be the most radical left liberal in Congress didn't give me much hope he would have my best interests at heart either.
My concerns and mistrust have been proven justified.
better to stick to Obama's obvious and glaring real faults instead of your narrow moral judgments...

What that shows is Democrats are willing to compromise. Republicans...not so much. As Dan Pfeiffer said, Republicans negotiate with "a bomb strapped to their chest".
Tell me, how many times in the history of the United States has a political party taken an oath to vote against any bill presented by the opposing party? It's silly to believe that the same kind of unconstitutional legislative coalition that existed in the past is viable today.
FACT: The ACA went through our Constitutional legislative process and was signed into law. You people need to get over it.
FACT: If the majority of the people wanted the ACA repealed, they would have voted for Romney. They didn't.
Republicans tried over and over, and over, and over again to repeal the ACA through lawful means of voting and failed. Then, they tried to illegally repeal the ACA by circumventing the Constitution and defunding the ACA. They failed.
This Republican "political strategy" is sickening, childish and harmful to America. Until such time as Republicans get off their high horse and show a willingness to compromise, Obama has no choice but to circumvent the House to get things accomplished. I support any strategy that ends the stalemate that currently exists in Congress.
before there can be compromise, there must be inclusion....

the DemoKKKrats refused to include Republicans in any manner in developing the Anti-American Communist Act...

So, you hate the majority of Americans who think Obamacare sucks and are up in arms over it? It is the main political issue of the day and you want to hide your head in the sand.

None of you have came up with any excuse with why it was a good idea to kick millions of Americans off their insurance plans.

your right what does it matter Obama has no military experience or understanding when there are constantly wars and attacks against the Kenyan, Rwandan, Congolese all over Africa!

His homeland Kenya! Check out all the youtube videos with Barack and Michelle admitting he is a foreigner and born in Kenya. They said it but oh yeah, now they are denying it and saying he was born in Hawaii, lol.

Right, we all believe you especially after all the lies told about ObamaCare!

LIAR IN CHIEF!
