Hank Comes In Third In Virginia Senate Race (Apparently)

According to the Constitution Daily, Hank the Cat seems to have placed third in that hard-fought Senate race in Virginia. Tim Kaine won out over George Allen. However, Hank apparently garnered six thousand write in votes, which admittedly didn't make a dent in the overall total, but are a respectable total for a feline who ducked a nasty attack ad from a Canine Superpac that suggested he took catnip, had never served in the military and refused to release his birth records. He does seem to have won over the media, if not the voters. Will Hank be back in six years? It's not clear he's feline-another run for national office. Maybe Official Rodent Control Officer is more his style.
