Do you remember Hank, the ADORBz Maine coon cat with a heart of gold that was running for Virginia Senate?
Well, 6,000 Virginians do, as Hank came in THIRD in the race after racking up 6,000 votes!
The projected victor, Tim Kaine (D), is beating George Allen (R) by 184,000 votes…so 6,000 votes for a candidate that isn't allowed to run is cute, but sort of alarming as well!
Hank wasn't the only cat that ran for office this year either. In Canada, a kitty named Tuxedo Stan ran for office too.
Are we at the point where furry felines seem like better options on Capitol Hill?!!?
