Douglas, Massachusetts became Douglas-Benny headquarters Thursday as the Manx Party candidates met supporters at a rally. Douglas had the crowd cheering when he consumed some Marshmallow Fluff, and friendly Benny pressed paws with the locals. Afterwards, Douglas and Benny visited Boston, where they followed the Freedom Trail to the North End and stopped at Mike’s Pastry. Douglas had part of a Lobster Tail pastry, and Benny helped eat the cream filling.
On Friday, Douglas took his campaign to New York City where a variety of performers showed their support in an all-star recital at Carnegie Hall. At the end of the evening, someone brought a Manx flag to the front of the auditorium as everyone cheered.
Benny didn’t go home, he visited the Jersey Shore and saw a sign stretched across the highway saying Benny for VP. He hit the Atlantic City Boardwalk and met with the local feral cats, then visited the Atlantic City Hilton where he won a jackpot on the Benny Big Game slot machine.
The feline candidates are scheduled to visit California, Georgia, and Tennessee before returning to Chicago in preparation for Super Tuesday.
