ADAIR COUNTY, Ky. (WHAS11) -- An Adair county native says he's considering a run for Congress.

The idea started with a tweet from 25-year-old Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer.

He tweeted the message: "Congress 2016, POTUS 2024!"

Shortly after that tweet, his followers started retweeting the message and sending messages of support.

The Kentucky native served in the Marine Corps and saved the lives of three dozen American and Afghan troops in Afghanistan who were attacked by the Taliban.

Meyer received the Medal of Honor in 2011.
