'Duck Dynasty' patriarch cuts TV ads for nephew
BATON ROUGE - Phil Robertson, patriarch of TV's "Duck Dynasty" family, is the star of two new congressional campaign ads in Louisiana, hoping to boost support for his nephew, Republican Zach Dasher.
Dasher's campaign says the pair of 15-second ads will begin airing Tuesday and run through election day next week. One says Dasher believes in both "Bibles and guns." The other describes Dasher as a family man who "knows his Bible."
They're the first TV commercials to feature any member of Dasher's famous family.
The political newcomer is seeking the northeast Louisiana-based congressional seat currently held by Republican Vance McAllister.
Robertson backed McAllister in last year's special election. But that was before the congressman was caught on a security video kissing a woman who was not his wife.
