Kansas Secretary of State Says Puppy Not Eligible to Run for Governor

Kansas Secretary of State Says Puppy Not Eligible to Run for Governor

"Officially, we will not allow a dog to run for governor", Bryan Caskey, director of elections for the Kansas secretary of state's office, said Tuesday.

Despite the crushing blow, Woolley says he firmly believes that Angus would have been a very good governor, bravely leading the people of Kansas with his siblings Babe and Max by his side as Lt. governor and secretary of state.

However, the Secretary of State's Office didn't bite, ruling Angus could not run for the office.

"I am sure that Kobach is scared to lose to Angus in the general election", Woolley said.

Man's best friend will not be Kansas' next governor.

The Hill on Tuesday reported that a dog who recently tried to launch a gubernatorial campaign was informed he is not eligible to run because he is a dog, which, rude. It wasn't that I thought teens running are stupid.

The 2018 election had already garnered national attention when six teenaged boys filed to run for Kansas's top office.

That's because Angus is a dog. "I basically said I'd have to get him [Angus] a gun, he'll have to be anti-abortion and a staunch conservative, even though he'll cut taxes and spend more money than any governor ever".

Hank, a cat, ran for the US Senate in Virginia in 2012.

Dog mayors -surprisingly not unheard of in the United States.

A Kansas local filed paperwork this weekend to enter his three-year-old wire terrier, Angus, in the race for governor.

"I'm glad, I guess, a dog wasn't allowed onto the ballot because that just... makes no sense", said Republican Rep. Blake Carpenter of Derby, who introduced the bill.

"I went to the search bar on Facebook before I headed out of the office today and he was the No. 1 trending search", Woolley said.
