The grandson of an illegal Mexican immigrant, Richard Ojeda served in the U.S. Army from 1988-2013. He served in Iraq and Afghanistan only to come back and see kids in West Virginia doing worse than children in the combat zones he left. He was honorably discharged with the rank of Major and two Bronze Stars. A true war hero.
While in most political ads where the politician is calm and cool, Ojeda declares he is angry at the status quo and will not rest until all is set right.
After losing a seat for the House of Representatives by 12 points in the 2018 midterm elections, Ojeda announced on November 12 that he would be running for President in 2020. He dropped out soon after once realizing that he didn't have the money to run a campaign.
Also, he is ripped.
