Willie Robertson, the star of the break-out Arts and Entertainment (A&E) surprise hit is giving serious consideration to a run for the Louisiana State Assembly just as soon as current Representative Rodney Alexander vacates his seat to accept a position in the administration of the extremely popular Governor Bobby Jindal.
The bearded and bandana-clad CEO of the multi-million dollar hunting accessory and apparel manufacturer Duck Commander, Inc. of West Monroe, Louisiana, Robertson is popular with pro-life advocates for his open and ardent support of both adoption and foster care versus abortion.
Robertson appeared last May at a fundraiser at the Prestonwood Pregnancy Center in Dallas, Texas, where he spoke of how adopting has helped him “understand God’s love.” Robertson’s colorful and plain spoken father, Phil, has made no bones about his opinion of the status of unborn children (See video):
