Those aren't good odds
About one in a billion.
That’s the chance Chester Kelley thinks his former opponent Patti Cox faces has in her attempts to unseat U.S. Rep. Jim McCrery.
Cox filed suit against the Republican incumbent earlier this month challenging his residency and requesting a rematch between her and fellow Democrat Artis Cash – the second- and third-highest vote getters among the four candidates.
Cash has already said he wants the matter resolved quickly.
“I’d like to go to Washington at the first of January,” Cash said. “I think the weather up there is nice around that time.”
Kelley, a Republican, would like to think if it came down to a rematch the Republican party would fight to get him on the ballot. But he’s also being realistic.
“I doubt that would happen,” he said. “This is probably going to be summarily dismissed without anyone asking the legal questions involved, that is the very essence of who a congressman represents begins with where he lives.”
