Jacob Chansley, the Arizona man who entered the halls of Congress shirtless while wearing patriotic face paint and horned fur headgear on Jan. 6, 2021, has filed paperwork to run for Congress as a Libertarian.
According to the filings, Mr. Chansley is seeking to fill the seat currently held by Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz.), who announced in October that she won't be running for reelection in Arizona's 8th Congressional District. The congresswoman's term ends in January 2025.
Others seeking the seat include Blake Masters, a Republican who lost to Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly in last year's election, and Republican state Sen. Anthony Kern, who was labeled an "insurrectionist" by Arizona Democrats for being present at the Jan. 6 "Stop the Steal" rally in Washington.
