You’d think candidates would follow the basic rules to be elected. The Daily Caller reports:
A Democratic candidate running to replace Rep. Don Young, the Republican holding Alaska’s at-large congressional seat, has never been to the state, according to the Associated Press.
“She doesn’t live in Alaska. In fact, she’s never been to the state,” the Associated Press saidof 64-year-old Carol Hafner who admitted she doesn’t even plan on campaigning in The Last Frontier state.
Hafner’s candidate filing lists both South Dakota and New Jersey as her addresses.
As The Hill notes, “The Constitution states that in order to serve in Congress one must meet age and citizenship requirements and inhabit the state at the time of one’s election.”
We’ll see how this turns out.
