The Hill reports:
Former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has filed papers with the Federal Election Commission to seek a new term in Congress, six years after leaving office to join the Trump administration. Zinke, 59, a Republican, won two elections to represent Montana’s lone congressional district, in 2014 and 2016. Zinke’s filing indicates he plans to run for Montana’s 2nd Congressional District, a seat that does not yet exist on paper.
Read the full article. Zinke resigned in late 2018 while facing an ethics probe over his travel, fundraising, and conflicts of interest. Before quitting, he called Democratic Rep. Raúl Grijalva a “drunk” for calling for his resignation.
VICTORY! Ryan Zinke will resign as @interior secretary amid his massive corruption and scandals. Zinke’s days of plundering our lands and using his public office for personal gain are over. https://t.co/UFDK3J29zX
