Limberbutt McCubbins: Cat running for president

Meet Limberbutt McCubbins, a Louisville native feline running for president.

While questions remain about the legitimacy of his four-legged campaign, Limberbutt is formally registered with the Federal Elections Commission. It's unknown when he'll officially hit the campaign 'tail.'

Thinking it would be funny, high school senior Isacc Weiss convinced his friend Emilee McCubbin's tubby tabby to run for president.

They logged on to the Federal Election Commission's website this spring and created 'the committee for the installation of Limberbutt.' Neither expected the campaign to go viral and now the feline now has a healthy following on Facebook and Twitter. He even has a Limberbutt 2016 campaign website.
