Jim Bob DuggarYou are interested in a career as a politician.

The 19 Kids and Counting alum announced he will run for Arkansas State Senate District 7 on Friday, Oct. 29, writing on the family’s Facebook profile that they are “excited to share this big announcement with you!”

In Jim Bob’s formal statement, the reality star stated in part that he’s running out of the belief that “it’s important to us to give back and to help others in every way we can.”

The father of 20 and 56-year-old son said, “Now more than ever, it’s time for a bold voice that’s pro-family, probusiness, progun, and pro-life.” Conservatives need to demand bold leadership that places Arkansas families, jobs and constitutional liberties first. I look forward being your voice in Arkansas State Senate.

Jim Bob served for four years in the Arkansas House of Representatives before he was defeated in the 2002 election. Bill Pritchard.
