Sunday, MSNBC “Velshi & Ruhle” co-host Stephanie Ruhle challenged Democrat Jon Ossoff, who lives outside of Georgia’s sixth district — even though he is running for its congressional seat.
“You are not able to vote because you don’t live in the district,” Ruhle said. “I understand that you don’t live in the district. You live where your fiancee, your girlfriend, is because you’re supporting her. She is in medical school. Why don’t you move at this point? I mean, you want to get this job. To me, it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. Why wouldn’t you just move so you can represent the district that you would be governing?”
He replied, “Well, as you know, Stephanie, I grew up in the district, and Alisha [Kramer] walks to work at the hospital every morning at 4:00 a.m. every morning for her medical shifts, her shifts at the hospital. I’m proud to be supporting her career even if I take a little bit of political heat for it.
Ossof then said if he gets elected in Tuesday’s special runoff election, he will move back into the district once Kramer is done with her medical training.
“I’ll be right back in the district, five minutes from where I grew up,” he told co-host Ali Velshi.
