"Serving in combat and being on the front lines of war gave me a decision-making ability that I think is different and unique than someone that hasn't been in that situation."

Church is the second candidate to officially get into the race. State Senator Tom Tiffany has been in the race for a couple of weeks. Both are running as Republicans to replace Sean Duffy. Candidates have until December 2 to file paperwork to run.
