Here are five cats that ran for political office, including including Hank, the cat from Springfield, Virginia who ran for the US senate.

Hank was rescued by an animal group from a kill shelter and later adopted by a family in Virginia. His website claims that unlike other candidates, Hank was not born with a "silver spoon" and has worked really hard to earn a name for himself.
