SPRINGFIELD, Va. - There's a new candidate running in Virginia, and to say he's finicky about his politics is an understatement.
He has a campaign ad, lawn signs, a website, Facebook page and a slogan: "Milk in every bowl."
His name is "Hank," and he is a former street cat from Springfield, Va.
"Hank" describes himself in a news release as a "proud independent with real world experience."
Rescued from euthanization by animal rescue group Animal Allies, Hank says his biggest campaign issue is low-cost spaying and neutering for the homeless animal population.
It's not clear if the campaign is a protest over the actual candidates on the ballot or a farce, because "Hank" himself is not talking.
WTOP reached out to his campaign, and nobody there is talking either. But you can see Hank's first campaign ad below:
