He's been labeled an "international man of mystery" and now, he's running for Governor of Montana.
In the crowded race for Governor one Republican candidate hopes his record sets him apart from everyone else.
"I'm a businessman, I've run two nine-figure companies. I'm the only candidate in this race who's actually been affiliated with companies that have drilled, mined and logged," said Neil Livingstone, candidate for Governor of Montana.
Livingstone has been in the counterterrorism business since the 1970's, saying he's worked for the government on behalf of the Beirut hostages in the 80's.
"I've had to deal with warlords and gangsters and terrorists all around the world. And from that perspective it should be easy dealing with bureaucrats in Helena and I'm not afraid of anything nor is my running mate, Ryan Zinke, who is a Senator from Whitefish, but was head of Seal team six, the unit that killed Osama Bin Laden," he said.
According to Livingstone, his campaign will focus on increasing jobs for Montanans.
"I'm a blue collar Republican. I'm not a country club Republican and I'm here to get jobs for people and to get the economy of this state going in the right direction," he said.
Livingstone says it's important to go back to taking advantage of the natural resources we have in the state.
"We've got to drill and log and mine and to do that we're going to have to cut regulations. We're going to have to make this a much more friendly business environment in the state of Montana. I want to see us lower taxes, cut the state corporate income tax or get rid of it altogether," said Livingstone.
