"Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker (Ga.) benefits from a tax exemption on his Texas home although the GOP candidate lives in Georgia, where he is running for public office.

The tax exemption is meant for primary residents in Texas, but for 2022, Walker will get a $1,500 homestead exemption at his Dallas area home, CNN reported."

(...)

"The exemption also raises questions about Walker’s candidacy, as the U.S. Constitution requires Senate candidates to live in the state they are running for."

Ugh...I wish he would just go away..It never fails on the articles here, people go to the : He played for UGA so you have to vote for him schtick. No..just no. That is not a reason to vote for someone. I'm a huge UGA fan. I remember when he won the Heisman in 1980, but..I did not vote for him the first time and I won't vote for him on the 6th regardless of the fact that he played for UGA 40+ years ago.
The thing that kills me about this is the same people that bitched about Stacey Abrams not living in GA for a while are now ignoring the fact that Walker has been living in Dallas for years and did not come back to GA until he was going to make a run for the Senate. It's hypocritical at best.

I don’t think he would have gotten as far but I’m just glad he decided not to run in Texas.

Was just curious because I'm a Michigan resident and the "78 F***ing years old" man is Indiana so we are homesteaded in both.

His marital status is irrelevant. If he’s running for Georgia, he ought to live in Georgia.
