Romney’s dog to get his own super PAC

Seamus the Irish Setter is getting his own super PAC.

Politico reported today that Democrat Bob McDevitt has filed paperwork to launch the super PAC Animal Lovers Against Romney.

It will tell the tale, first publicized by the Globe, of Mitt Romney’s decision to put his dog in a kennel attached to his station wagon roof for a family trip from Massachusetts to Canada.


McDevitt told Politico his goal is to “get the message out just how callous in temperament Mitt Romney is.”

It has a budget of $1 million.
