4. I'll be fair

 

I don't like Democrats doing it either. I can't see how a person who wants to represent a state running for office and has not lived there for a period of time could possibly be a better candidate than someone who knows the area, laws, how the system works in their district or state, etc. Half the time, they hardly know where the state is on a map that they are going to be representing (ok a bit exaggerated). It seems impossible to me that in a state with millions of people, that the Republicans could not find somebody to run for that seat and quite frankly if they couldn't then too bad. Yep I mean that with the Democrats too. Each state (with a few exceptions) have over a million people living in the state, I find it impossible to believe that they can't find one Democrat and one Republican to run in each election.
