Ammon Bundy has announced that he is officially running for Governor of Idaho.
Bundy’s campaign was announced on Saturday and will be running as a Republican in the state’s primary against Gov. Brad Little.
“I’m running for Governor because I’m sick and tired of all of this political garbage just like you are. I’m tired of our freedoms being taken from us and I’m tired of the corruption that is rampant in our state Government,” the VoteBundy website reads. “And look, let’s be real, Joe Biden and those in the Deep State that control him, will simply not be able to help themselves—they are going to try to take away our gun rights, freedom of religion, parental rights, and more—and further violate the Constitution in unimaginable ways—even more than they’ve already done.”
Bundy is perhaps most infamous for the 2014 armed confrontation between supporters of his father, cattle rancher Cliven Bundy, and law enforcement over a land dispute. He also made headlines in 2016 for the standoff at an Oregon wildlife refuge.
Bundy’s supporters recently stormed a hospital to support a woman who says that her mother was the victim of “medical kidnapping.” They were ultimately victorious and the woman was released.
Last August, Bundy was banned from entering the Idaho Capitol for a year following two arrests, according to the Idaho Statesman.
Last fall, Bundy refused to wear a mask to his son’s high school football game, prompting officials to end it at half time.
