Clay Higgins, a reality star and former police captain, defeated a fellow Republican in his bid for a seat in Louisiana’s 3rd district on Saturday, according to The Associated Press.

The YouTube star known as “Cajun John Wayne” won his first race for public office, defeating Republican public service commissioner Scott Angelle.

Higgins, who hosted a weekly segment for a local news station, was running to replace six-term Republican Rep. Charles Boustany, who ran unsuccessfully for Louisiana’s open Senate seat.
