Out of the field of six candidates running to unseat U.S. House Rep. Don Young this fall, there is one candidate who’s never set foot in Alaska. 

Carol Hafner is a Democrat running for Alaska’s sole U.S. House of Representatives seat.

She lists a South Dakota address on her filings with the state Division of Elections. That address belongs to a mail-drop service near Rapid City, South Dakota that maintains addresses for transient seniors.
