Jim Bob Duggar recently revealed that his run for the vacant Arkansas State Senate seat is still on despite his son Josh’s conviction last week. As you may know, Josh was found guilty of receiving and possessing child pornography. Now, he’s awaiting his sentencing and will spend decades behind bars.

In a tweet on Thursday, December 9, the same day Josh was convicted, Jim Bob revealed he was updating his Ballotpedia page with his vision and goals. This seemed to confirm that he’s still in the race.

Jim Bob announced his run for State Senate shortly before his son’s trial began. This came as a surprise due to the drama going on with the family at that time. Some fans and critics assumed this was a distraction tactic. But now, it looks like Jim Bob is truly following through.
