Hank The Cat Running For Senate In Virginia

If you're looking for a third-party candidate who's the cat's pajamas, then look no further. Hank the Cat is running as a moderate for a U.S. Senate seat in Virginia.

The former street cat, who once prowled Springfield, Va. and was rescued before euthanization by an area animal group, is running on a platform of low-cost spaying and neutering for homeless animals.

The Springfield kitty's mock campaign has become an online sensation. Hank's owner, Anthony Roberts, says the "Hank for Senate'' website has been jammed following a recent spate of publicity.

Roberts said he and his partner started the campaign as a bit of an inside joke, but he says he now relishes the opportunity to use Hank to mock the political status quo.
