Duggar fans mock Jed, 21, for saying he wants to ‘grow jobs’ during political campaign


- Advertisment -

JEDIDIAH Duggar has been mocked for claiming he wants to “grow jobs” as he runs for political office.

The meaningless phrase has appeared on the 21-year-old’s political paraphenelia which has been sent out to local registered voters.

Jed is running for Arkansas state representative in district 89, and a pamphlet read that he was “100% pro-life,” would “defend the second amendment,” and that he would “grow jobs.”

But fans of the conservative family – who star on TLC show Counting On – mocked the phrase, asking: “How does one ‘grow jobs,’ I wonder.”

“On job trees obviously,” retorted one fan, as another added: “So what do you just plant job seeds in the ground? What’s your plan here?”

On his website he claims that he “will fight to keep government out of the way and push back on burdensome regulations that hurt our small businesses here in Springdale.”


Jed is running on an extremely conservative platform, and has also called to “lower taxes,” “protect religious liberty,” and “improve educational outcomes.”

The Duggar children did not attend school, and were instead homeschooled by their mother Michelle; Jed received his GED in 2016.

Their father Jim Bob was a Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives between 1999 and 2002.

Jed launched his campaign in November 2019, and it came two years after Arkansas State Representative Charlene Fite claimed on Facebook that he was interning at the Arkansas State House of Representatives.

The post was later deleted, and his campaign websit refers to this experience as being a legislative assistant.

His campaign website also says that he was the campaign manager for Senator Bob Ballinger’s successful 2018 State Senate run.

He is running against incumbent Democrat State Rep Megan Godfrey.
