Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren was stuck in Washington for President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, so her pet dog named Bailey Warren made his presence felt at the campaign.
Less than a week before the Iowa caucus, the 20-month-old Golden Retriever, accompanied by Warren’s husband Bruce Mann, made three campaign stops on Wednesday. The dog also participated in a selfie line, just like Senator Warren, who stays back at her campaign events to take selfies with people.
“As you can see, it is all paws on deck,” Mann said at Wednesday’s meet and greet event, according to Wahington Post.
Bailey also met Gideon Kidd, a 11-year-old who runs the popular Twitter account “I’ve Pet That Dog”.
“He is campaigning through Iowa to become First Dog,” Kidd tweeted along with a selfie.
I pet Bailey Warren. He is an almost 2 year old Golden Retriever. He is campaigning through Iowa to become First Dog. The most important issues he wants addressed are more Milkbones and getting rid of student debt. pic.twitter.com/g3ZWD1bD3Y
