On Thursday, Oregon’s Supreme Court ruled that former New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristoff cannot run for governor of the state because he does not meet its residency requirements.

The Hill report:

The decision comes after the state’s election officials said in January the former columnist did not meet the three-year residency requirement laid out in the Oregon Constitution. Kristoff has officially been a resident of the state since November of 2019. Kristoff and his attorneys have said that he grew up in the state and owns a farm there.

“The Secretary of State has attempted to remove me from the ballot in this year’s governor’s race. This is a decision grounded in politics, not precedent. The law is clearly on our side. Our campaign will challenge this decision in court, and we will win,” Kristoff said in January.

Kristoff was permitted to take his case straight to the state Supreme Court instead of the circuit court after his lawyers argued that any delay would negatively impact his ability to run a campaign.

The ruling will likely have an impact on the race to replace Gov. Kate Brown (D), who is term-limited. Kristoff has argued he is the front-runner in the Democratic primary race, which also includes former House Speaker Tina Kotek and Oregon sate Treasurer Tobias Read. The primary election is set to take place in May.

Oregon needs a clearing of elite liberal idiots, just as bad as Calipornia does! One horrific mandate after another, treating the people like the stupid liberal sheep that they are!

They all try everything they can to bypass the laws. Look at Kamala. Vice President. Wants to be President. She can’t. Can’t ever be President. You have to have been born on USA soil to be President. She wasn’t! They are all outlaws!

Not QUITE true. But, she is not a “natural born” American citizen because despite being born on US soul, neither of her parents was a US citizen. That makes Cameltoe Harris nothing more than an anchor baby.

Why can’t Kamala be President?
She is the Vice President.
They have identical requirements.
The minute after Joe is dead, in office, Kamala is the President.
Kamala Devi Harris was born in Oakland, California,[9] on October 20, 1964.[10]
You must confusing Kamala with Obama.
He was definitely born in some fecal matter hole country…..
Pants on fire.
