DuBose Porter affirmatively established that he was qualified to be a candidate for the Georgia House of Representatives in District 143 through persuasive evidence of his legal residence therein.  Porter’s legal residence in District 143 was not undermined by evidence of his ownership, and part-time residence, at a “camp house” located outside of District 143 because the residence was temporary, and Porter had no intent of making the camp house a permanent residence.
