Cravaack (Pretender-8th district) will move his family to New Hampshire

The familys decision to move to New Hampshire was made so that Cravaack and his wife, Traci, could spend more time with their two children. Cravaack said his wife often had to spend three days a week in the Boston area for her work with a medical supply company.


Huh. One of the big slams on Oberstar was that he was gadding about France or DC and was never back in Chisholm. Doesn't take these assholes long, does it?

The day this man is booted out, I will dance in the street.

1. He will run for something there. Sadly. People there will not know about his
Edited on Sat Jul-16-11 11:32 AM by glinda
getting money from the airlines for "not" taking care of his sleep apnea. They won't know that he is a looser and had the support of extreme religious righties who salivated at the hope of banning abortion and birth control. They won't know that while working for our district, he won't represent you on most issues and loves loves loves the mining industry.
Good riddens asshat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He is jumping ship soon like Pawlenty and Bachmann because he will not win again. Same as the other losers just living off of the public's donations.

4. Read the article
only the wife and kiddies are moving to New Hampshire. Chipper is still planning to run for reelection in the 8th. He says he'll spend Saturdays in the district & Sundays in New Hampshire. I'm just wondering who gets to pay for all that travel.

5. It says a lot to me when a congressman's family doesn't live in the state he represents.
I can't decide if this is arrogance or cluelessness or both. In any case, it's breathtaking.

6. And the Republicans were accusing Tarryl Clark of "carpetbagging"
when she moved to Duluth so she could run agains Chipper. That should come back and bite them in the ass now.

7. What Clark is doing *is* carpetbagging, and I hate it. But Cravaack ran on Oberstar being off in

"France" all the time and never coming back to his district. Which I find hilarious, because I couldn't go to a labor picnic or parade without tripping over Oberstar for the past five years.

2. Who is managing this guy?
He really doesn't want the job, does he? Maybe this is his "out" later when he doesn't run for re-election - because his family lives across the country. Which is good. He needs to go.

3. That's what I thought! He announced this at the same time he announced his run for re-election.
Just a damn shame Oberstar had to go out like this. What a joke Cravaack has turned the 8th into. Shameful.

8. Does homesteading property come into play at all??
I do realize some elected officials rent

But I would ask him if the state is not good enough for his family to live here
why should anyone vote for him

If his family is claiming homestead in New Hampshire then Minnesota is not his primary residence
it would be like using your summer cabin as your official residence for election purposes










insert old French saying here

9. There is actually no requirement that you live in the district you're running in
though most politicians do - or at least cover it up if they aren't.

12. People don't like carpetbagging and will make an issue of it
especially if the carpetbagger is the candidate you're not supporting.

13. The law needs to be changed then
Stating you have to live in the district to run
It really sounds as if both are carpetbaggers
I wonder if they are related to teabaggers

14. To do that
you'd have to amend the Constitution:

Article 1 Section 2
"No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen."

11. To make this clear
You don't have to live in the district, but you do have to live in the state.
