Albany-- A candidate for an Albany state house seat continues to campaign as she waits to find out if she'll be allowed to run.
Freddie Powell Sims went door to door on Robinhood Road, a new part of District 151.
Powell Sims went before a state judge Wednesday after her opponent, Representative Lawrence Roberts, questioned whether she lives in the district.
No ruling has been issued, but Powell Sims says doubts about her residency aren't slowing her campaign, "I live in the district. I am not going to allow, it's just a hitch here and there. Of course you expect your opponent to find some way to bump you off the campaign trail, but I am here and I am going to continue to do what I set out to do."
Roberts contends Powell Sims lives full time in Terrell County, because that's where she accepted a homestead exemption on property there.
Powell Sims says she has lived in an Albany apartment for nearly a year, while she looks for a house.
A State Administrative Judge is expected to rule on the issue soon.
