Former MSNBC anchor Dylan Ratigan announced he will be running for Congress in New York’s 12th District as a Democrat, Wednesday afternoon.

Ratigan, 45, said he will be running against Republican Elise Stefanik, at a campaign announcement in Saranac Lake, N.Y. The announcement was followed by multiple tweets explaining why he was running for congress. The former host of the “Dylan Ratigan show” left MSNBC in 2012 and now believes he can bring the U.S. the “truth” in congress.

After his first tweet, Ratigan made it clear that he has never voted in his entire life because he believed “the choices available didn’t reflect the potential leadership for this country,” but he said he “was wrong.”

Stefanik, Ratigan’s opponent, has held her seat in the 21st Congressional District for two terms.
