Brock Pierce, formerly from Minnesota, is the latest to announce his candidacy for president.
Nearly 30 years ago, Pierce was a child actor, appearing the first two “Mighty Ducks” movies, filmed in Minnesota.
Pierce is now a businessman, having made a fortune in the Bitcoin, or crypto-currency field.
“In my business career, my childhood acting didn’t play a huge role in it, but in running for president it’s brought up constantly,” Pierce said. “And yeah, we’re here at the New Hope Ice Arena where I have many great memories.”
