In October Hank the cat declared himself a candidate for the Senate seat being vacated by Senator Jim Webb. Hank is a 9 year Maine Coon from Springfield, Virginia. He set up a Facebook page to promote himself, and even has a campaign ad out.
Hank may not be the first cat to run for political office, but I bet he is the first cat to have a Super PAC put out an ad against them. The Super PAC, Canines for a Feline Free Tomorrow have released an ad that states, “More facts, not fat cats.”
