The Republican field expands as Jason Emert joins the race for Jimmy Duncan's seat in Congress. At least Emert is no longer claiming to be an attorney and health care professional. He is, however, claiming he will go to Washington to repeal Obamacare and protect the 2nd Amendment.

He couldn't beat Eddie Smith in the 2014 GOP primary for State House so he's setting his sights higher this time, even though he said after his primary defeat that he had no plans to launch a political career.
