MARY REICHARD, HOST: Well, we can report one drama-free race this week.
Both Republicans and Democrats voted in a new mayor in a small Kentucky town.
Wilbur Beast won with 57 percent of the vote.
Stacy Seligman Staat lives there. She said the other side didn’t campaign very much. Staat told WKRC…
STAAT: There is one candidate that is always found on the front porch napping, sometimes in the middle of the road. I’m not kidding.
Wilbur Beast’s campaign raised more than $6,000.
Pretty good for a French bulldog.
You see, the “mayor” of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky is an honorary office reserved for creatures with four legs.
The Rabbit Historical Society holds the election every four years to raise money. Each vote is attached to a $1 dollar donation.
Wilbur Beast edged out 13 other dogs and a donkey. And he easily ousted incumbent Mayor Brynneth Pawltro—a pitbull who took office in 2017.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
