After raising and spending millions of dollars for the hotly contested midterms, candidates can't seem to resist the endorsement of a lovable animal, whether pig or pug, to help draw in a few more votes. In races for both governorships and Senate seats, candidates have turned to animals of all shapes and sizes to rally up supporters and get out the vote. From dogs donning signs and pigs puckering up, the midterms are filled with puppy love.
