"Evidently, six minutes at my interview table counts as New York State residency," (Stephen) Colbert said to the former Tennessee congressman, who registered to vote here last fall

Instead of the more traditional funding of a fringe challenger, they're trying to run a more centrist primary challenger to push Gillibrand (pretty centrist) out to the left, so when the general election comes around, she can get pinned on her primary statements.)
