Hank The Cat Seeks U.S. Senate Seat In Virginia

SPRINGFIELD, Va. (UPI) — A 9-year-old Virginia cat’s Web site says his bid for the U.S. Senate is aimed at creating jobs and improving living conditions.

Hank the cat, whose campaign is outlined at, is a Springfield native who was born to a single mother on the streets and earned everything he has “through hard work,” WRC-TV, Washington, reported Wednesday.

“What people don’t realize is that we don’t need some new crazy way of doing something to fix our problems,” the Web site says. “After all, the problems we face now have been faced by Americans since this great land was founded. Right now we need to fall back on time-tested solutions, not social theory.”

The Web site says it is seeking volunteers to “harp for Hank” with door-to-door canvassing, making phone calls, putting up signs and volunteering at polling places.

“As I’ve traveled throughout the commonwealth I’ve seen real people with real problems,” the Web site quotes Hank as saying, “not guinea pigs for a politician’s experiments.”
