(N.M.) Libertarian candidate for CD1 seat doesn't live in the district

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- One of the people running to represent New Mexico's 1st Congressional District does not live in the district. However, Libertarian candidate Chris Manning is not technically required to move from his home in Farmington, which is in another district.

The U.S. Constitution requires several things from members of the U.S. House. They must be at least 25 years old, have been a U.S. Citizen for at least seven years, and live in the state they represent. They do not have to live in the district they represent.

"Voters in NM CD1 have to decide what's more important, my address or my solutions to the policy," Manning said. "A congressman spends a lot of his time in D.C. and is away anyway ..."

Manning is running against Democratic candidate Melanie Stansbury, who lives in Albuquerque, Republican Mark Moores, who also lives in Albuquerque, and Independent Aubrey Dunn, who lives in Torrance County, which is part of the 1st Congressional District.

1. He'll be lucky to get 2%. Dunn and Moores are

both Republicans. Stansbury in a landslide.

Moores is the official R candidate, Dunn is a R turned Libertarian. Dunn doesn't like Moores and has basically decided to rat-fuck him.

2. Meh. This is not a very Libertarian friendly state.

Not even the relatively right wing first district.

One of the reasons I wasn't all that crazy about Deb Haaland becoming Secretary of the Interior was losing her as Representative. I don't live in that district, I'm in the third and have Teresa Leger Fernandez as my Representative.
