Dem Alaska House Candidate Has Never Set Foot in Alaska

Democrat Carol Hafner “says she’s serious about” her challenge to Alaska Rep. Don Young this year, but there’s just one problem: she’s never set foot in the state of Alaska, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Hafner lives in New Jersey and South Dakota, and “she doesn’t plan to campaign in person.”

According to the report, her son pursued a failed run for a congressional seat in Oregon this year and Hawaii in 2016. He also apparently did not live in those states:

The New Jersey addresses match those used by Eric Hafner during a failed run as a Democrat in an Oregon U.S. House primary earlier this year, which caught the attention of Julie Olsen, an Anchorage Democratic Party leader. She said she was worried that Eric Hafner had “hijacked” Carol Hafner’s identity and created an online persona to file for office. Olsen supports Shein.

Hafner, 64, said Eric Hafner is her son. She said he also ran unsuccessfully in the Republican primary for a U.S. House seat in Hawaii in 2016. Efforts to reach him were unsuccessful.

Hafner told the Times that she is seeking to bring attention to environmental issues with her run.
