Cat's Senate Run Challenged by Canine Super PAC

"He has enemies," an email warned us today

As with Mordor, you cannot just walk into a Senate seat.

"He has enemies," an email warned us today.

Hank, the Maine coon cat who announced his Virginia Senate campaign earlier this week, is being branded as a carpetbagger in a new video from an unnamed opposition.

"Hank has never released his birth certificate or tax returns, and has never responded to allegations that he used catnip," the video also warns.

Near the end, the ad notes it was paid for by Canines for a Feline-Free Tomorrow Super PAC... although it was uploaded to YouTube by THE BiG HONKIN', a group of writers, filmmakers and other creative types. We're going to assume they were just, um, helping the dogs.
