Woman runs for Congress in Alaska but has never been to the state

Yahoo News Video

Carol Hafner is running for a congressional seat in Alaska despite having never set foot in the state. Hafner, a 64-year-old retiree, is a Democratic candidate in Alaska even though she has not once visited the state. She had been running on environmental and economic issues, but her campaign began to change after she gained the attention of a state Democratic leader because she used a New Jersey address in her candidacy filings, the Associated Press reported last month.
