The other office knickknacks in Sen. Kelly AyotteKelly AyotteTim Kaine backs call to boost funding for Israeli missile defense Clinton brings in the heavy hitters Kasich doesn't regret skipping convention MORE’s digs at the Capitol better move over — there’s a new moose in town.
On Tuesday, the New Hampshire Republican will welcome “Oscar the Moose” to his new home (we’re assuming Oscar is a “he” here, folks) in Ayotte’s Russell Senate building front office.
The reason for the move is simple: “Increasingly frustrated by business as usual in the nation’s capital, Oscar is determined to bring New Hampshire common sense to Washington,” Ayotte’s office wrote in a statement.
Ayotte appears to be excited about her new, ever-gazing addition, “Oscar’s presence in my Washington office will bring some of the spirit of New Hampshire to Capitol Hill. He’ll serve as a proud symbol of our state’s treasured wildlife and our rich outdoor heritage.”
No word on how Oscar the Moose feels about the move.
