Campaign Trails

Legislators in Massachusetts have nominated a female groundhog to be the state's official groundhog! Ms. G, pictured (!) would be the first official groundhog of the state. "What does Punxsutawney Phil know about Massachusetts?" says MA Audubon Society's Christy Foote-Smith. "We need our own groundhog." Ms. G is 4 years old and "currently running unopposed." Can you get behind her platform of hibernation? [UPI, Boston Globe]
