The other office knickknacks in Sen. Kelly Ayotte’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.
