EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — One Indiana congressional candidate is running her campaign online while living overseas.
The Courier & Press reports that 25-year-old Rachel Covington is running for the 8th District congressional seat for Indiana. She’s been campaigning primarily on her website and on Facebook while living in Japan as an English teacher.
Covington says she’ll move back to Indiana if she’s nominated during the Republican primary in May. The U.S. Constitution says Covington would have to establish residency in Indiana by the Nov. 6 general election in order to be elected.
She’s seeking to unseat four-term Republican U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon of Indiana. Covington’s website says she wants to legalize marijuana, support abortion rights, lower military spending, rehabilitate drug offenders rather than imprison them and give access to fully insured birth control.
