Arizona Candidates Don't Have Homes in District

Two Republican congressional candidates in Arizona don't own homes in the districts they seek to represent, the Arizona Republic reports.

"Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) keeps his family home in the 1st District while he runs for the 4th. Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin (R) lives in the 4th District while he campaigns for the 1st."

"Gosar rented an apartment to deflect criticism. Tobin, who previously attacked Gosar for his move, didn't bother. Their decisions to run despite questions over their residency highlight that for some politicians pursuing political opportunity means running away from home, even when they know some voters will disapprove."
