Dog in the race? Pooch barred from race for Kansas governor

Last Updated Feb 13, 2018 at 9:21 am EST

HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Kansas election officials are putting the brakes on a dog’s campaign for governor.

KWCH-TV reports that Terran Woolley, of Hutchinson, decided to file the paperwork over the weekend for his 3-year-old pooch, Angus, to run for the state’s top office after reading stories about six teenage candidates. The teens entered the race after learning Kansas doesn’t have an age requirement, something lawmakers are seeking to change.

Angus is a type of hunting dog called a wire-haired Vizsla. Woolley figured Angus would need to run as a Republican. He described Angus as a “caring, nurturing individual who cares about the best for humanity and all creatures other than squirrels.”

But the Kansas Secretary of State’s office says man’s best friend is not capable of serving the responsibilities required of the governor.

Angus may well be a better qualified candidate than Secretary Kobach. At a minimum Angus has not used the time paid by Kansas citizens in the job of Secretary of State pursuing his personal political pleasures. You are paid by us to be Secretary of State…..period, if you don’t like this immediately resign.
Yes, Mr Kobach, you do owe your salary back to the State of Kansas plus a very sincere apology with a defined method of amending your future behaviors.
