I am so happy that my candidate won!

The Rabbit Hash Historical Society says a border collie has won the race for Mayor of Rabbit Hash.
Ten dogs, one cat, one opossum, one donkey, and one human being vied for the ultimate position of political power in this small Ohio River community in Boone County, Kentucky. It was a dog-eat-dog race.
Only this morning, the front runner was Travis the cat, holding a modest lead over two canine contenders. Travis showed a steady popularity the entire day, gaining the majority of the popular vote cast during the day.
After the presidential polls closed at 6:00 PM EST, the focus and the voters and the money relocated to Election Central in the Rabbit Hash barn. Food, fellowship, and good old American politics then prevailed for the next hour or so and then candidates were chasing each other around the barn while the humans on the other end of the leashes were cutting deals and lobbying the public.
The final tally was reported:
Lucy Lou is the new Mayor of Rabbit Hash with 8085 votes
Toby Runner-up with 4596 votes
Travis 3721 votes
Peggy Lee 73
