This is not the first time that a candidate has pitched their candidacy at the business end of a shotgun — though Democratic candidates appear to prefer hunting elephants.
For her part, Ellmer seems to draw a lively set of opponents. In 2014, she defeated former American Idol star Clay Aiken with 58.9 percent of the vote.
