Ex-NYT columnist Nicholas Kristof ineligible to run for Oregon governor


Former New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof is ineligible to run for governor in Oregon next year, state officials said Thursday.

Kristof, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner who left the newspaper in October, cannot seek the state’s top office in 2022 because he doesn’t meet the three-year residency requirement, according to Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan.

“The rules are the rules and they apply equally to all candidates for office in Oregon,” Fagan said in a statement. “I stand by the determination of the experts in the Oregon Elections Division that Mr. Kristof does not currently meet the Constitutional requirements to run or serve as Oregon governor.”
