Elephants caucus for candidates


Watch the elephants choose their candidates.

WASHINGTON (CNN)— Presidential politics often feel like one big political circus, but Friday, a group of elephants put meaning behind the term and caucused for their favorite presidential candidate.

Four elephants from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus on tour in Washington D.C. were lead by clowns in the caucus ring to different corners representing the candidates.

There was a three way tie until the last elephant uncovered a surprise fourth candidate.

After the surprise candidate was revealed, all the elephants seemed to change their stances and push for the surprise addition– turns out not all elephants are Republicans.

Watch the video to see who the surprise candidate was.
