This entire 2020 election has been a fraught one, filled to the brim with deep and troubling accusations, bombast of the highest order, and general, immense sense of doom.
Sure, the overall mood of 2020 didn’t help, but the election has become a flashpoint for all of the frustration of these last 10 months. Once there is finally a presidential winner declared, it is a safe bet to assume that we will see Americans of all shapes and sizes affected deeply by the results.
But that’s not to say that all manner of Americans haven’t already been touched by the results that we do know, including a French Bulldog named Wilbur.
This year, the fundraiser was for the Rabbit Hash Historical Society.
“The town was always filled with dogs so it was the natural solution and it took away all of the human aspects of politics, which was important to the town,” said Wilbur’s spokesperson and handler, Amy Noland.
There were 17 other candidates with their sights set on the title, including Jack Rabbit, a therapy dog, and a donkey named Higgins. There was even a rooster campaigning for the office, according to Noland.
Rabbit Hash has made a habit of electing animals to the Mayor’s office, and this quirky tradition combines to provide a bit of lighthearted fun during otherwise tense electoral times.
