The Democratic candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District faced questions on CNN on the fact that he could not vote for himself due to residency issues.
Jon Ossoff, the Democratic candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District faced questions on CNN Tuesday on the fact that he could not vote for himself due to residency issues.
“Mr. Ossoff, is it true that you cannot vote for yourself?” New Day host Alisyn Camerota asked.
“I grew up in this district. I grew up in this community,” Ossoff said. “No one knew there was going to be an election coming. I’ve been living with Alicia, my girlfriend of 12 years, down by Emory University where she’s a full-time medical student.”
Ossoff said that as soon as his girlfriend concluded her studies, he would move into the district.
“You don’t live in the district in which you’re running, so you will not be able to vote for yourself,” Camerota said.
“I grew up in this district. I grew up in this community. It’s my home,” Ossoff repeated.
