We’re all familiar with the Groundhog Day superstition about the groundhog seeing his shadow and six more weeks of winter. However…did you know groundhogs can also make political predictions? Apparently so, at least as far as mayoral elections go.
Remember Jon Freund? He was the Wisconsin mayor who was bit by Jimmy the Groundhog during the Groundhog Day celebration earlier this year. Well, he apparently lost his seat in a primary election.
Now, it’s not like we can be certain the Jimmy was making some kind of prediction as to the mayoral election, or even merely expressing a political preference. Still, isn’t it an interesting coincidence?
