Woolley feels Angus has the qualities and traits to make a good governor.

“I do believe he is a caring, nurturing individual who cares about the best for humanity and all creatures, other than squirrels,” said Terran Woolley.

While there’s nothing specific that says a dog cannot run to lead the state, the Secretary of State’s Office says man’s best friend is not capable of the responsibilities required of the governor.
