Oliver 2020: Dog Runs For President

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WJAR/NBC News) — There’s a new presidential candidate begging for votes in Fall River, Massachusetts.

Oliver Winston Churchill Finelli, a 2-year-old goldendoodle, is running on the Independent ticket.

Owners David and Marcee Finelli don’t think it’s too far-fetched to pull off a victory.
