A new candidate has emerged in the U.S. Senate race, challenging former Virginia governors George Allen (R) and Tim Kaine (D) with a single word: “Meow.”
His Senate run is founded on the issue of job creation.
Hank announced his candidacy earlier this month, and his promotional materials describe him as “a proud Independent” with “real world experience, a unique point of view, and limitless energy.”
The “Hank for Senate” Web site is asking for volunteers to “harp on Hank” by going door-to-door, making phone calls, and working at a polling place on election day.
The Hank campaign team was not available for comment Monday morning.
The feline is vying for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. James Webb (D) this year. Webb is not running for reelection.
