    oops, typo. article 2, section 1, requires candidates be inhabitants of different states.

      Randazzo, are you referring to the 12th Amendment? If so, I believe passage you refer to deals with Electors. Admittedly I might be reading it incorrectly.

      “The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President…”

      This seems to be stating the Electors must vote for at least one candidate who is not from the Elector’s state. But I might be misunderstanding the verbiage.
