Bryan Robert Whitney is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 2014 District 1 congressional race against Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, the Hutchinson News reported. In addition to Huelskamp’s campaign war chest of more than $500,000 and the large GOP advantage in voter registrations, Whitney faces another challenge: He lives in Wichita, which is in District 4. The U.S. Constitution allows Whitney to run for any Congressional seat in the state, as long as he lives in the state. He grew up in District 1, graduating from Syracuse High School, and plans to move back to the district in 2015 after his wife graduates from the University of Kansas Medical School in Wichita. But Whitney acknowledged that not living in the district during the campaign “will be difficult.”
