Looking for a home

Posted By on Thu, Mar 11, 2010 at 6:24 AM

John Brummett examines the residency of three leading Democratic candidates for 1st District Congress, none of whom has been actually living in the district day-to-day in recent months. This is immaterial in terms of eligibility to run, though it might become a political question. All have substantial roots in the district.

PS -- A reader notes Steve Bryles' collection of per diem paid out-of-town legislators while a functional resident of Little Rock. That, too, is a political issue, I'd guess.
