How Can This Be?

There's a special election today in Georgia that the Democrats have made into a big deal.  They are hoping that their candidate John Ossoff will get a majority and take the seat.  About ten days ago, that seemed like a possibility, if not likely.  Since then, the polls have moved in a GOP direction, so after all the hype, the most likely outcome is a runoff between the two top vote getters.

Here's the key question today, however:  Ossoff doesn't even live in the district.  How can he be running?  If it's legal for him to run in a district other than the one in which he lives, how could he possible hope to win?  I wonder how many of today's voters even know that Ossoff is a carpetbagger.  With this news getting more and more coverage, if Ossoff doesn't win outright today, his chances of winning in the runoff are looking pretty poor right now.
