ANCHORAGE- A New York attorney plans to run against Alaska Sen. Mark Begich in next year's Democratic primary, without leaving home.

William "Bill" Bryk says he wants Begich to have some competition. The state Democratic party has endorsed Begich, and no other Democrats have filed to run.
Bryk says if he won the primary, he would have to be an Alaska resident on Election Day, which he said is how the U.S. Supreme Court has interpreted the U.S. constitution on the issue of residency.
The constitution requires that to be a senator, a person must be at least 30 years old, a U.S. citizen for at least nine years and "when elected," an inhabitant of the state for which he was chosen.
