AMES, Iowa (CNN)- Politics is going to the dogs here at the Ames straw poll. Among the many booths outside the arena where the straw poll is being held is My Political Pets dot Com. Their slogan is “Vote with your Paws.” It’s a new organization set up this year to help raise funds for animal shelters across the country.
The organization says it doesn’t take sides when it comes to partisan politics. They describe themselves as “a pet project that combines two of the things closest to our hearts: our pets and our politics.”
