Havenstein, GOP governor candidate, asks NH Ballot Law Commission to rule on his residency
Democratic Party officials have claimed he does not meet state residency requirements because he lived in Maryland as recently as 2012.
Havenstein, who officially filed to run in the Repbublican gubernatorial primary Wednesday, released his petition to the Ballot Law Commission in which he claims he maintained his New Hampshire residency since he moved to Bedford in 1999, although he lived temporarily in Maryland through 2012.
“Rather than wait for frivolous complaints, I want to get this clarified as quickly as we can,” Havenstein said. “I’m 100 percent confident there will be no issue with my eligibility.”
“I am a proud, proud resident of this State of New Hampshire,” he said.
