UFO Researcher Running for Congress

A prominent UFO researcher who has long discussed mysterious incursions by the phenomenon at nuclear facilities is running for a U.S. House of Representatives seat in California. Former Air Force Captain Robert Salas has been something of a fixture in the UFO research community for well over a decade thanks in large part to his breathtaking account of seeing an unidentified craft somehow disable a barrage of nuclear missiles housed at Malmstrom AFB in Montana when he was serving at the facility back in 1967. Now he hopes to bring his experience and knowledge about the subject to the halls of Congress.

Salas will be on the Democratic primary ballot for California's 26th Congressional district this coming March. The UFO researcher reportedly first considered jumping into the world of politics following the late 2017 New York Times piece that revealed the existence of a clandestine Pentagon project looking at UFOs. Part of what inspired him to run for office this year is that he sees the portrayal of UFOs as a possible threat to be incongruous to his own experience in which the craft actually seemed to be sending a message, of sorts, about the dangers of nuclear weapons.
