A brief article on lifesitenews says that she is a strong Catholic,but articles from that site are not allowed here.

But she would be ineligible to take the seat, unless she was 18 by the time she were to swear the oath.

There is no prohibition on linking to Life Site News articles

I read she’ll turn 18 in july so she’ll be old enough to be the Delegate if she wins. I hope she wins!
