The election for Oakland, Calif., mayor is getting a little more ruff.

A dog named Einstein has thrown his name into the race, hoping to fetch voters with his adorable charm and a campaign platform focusing on ending police brutality and income inequality, as well as stopping the implantation of microchips in pets.

Meet California's furriest political star in the video.
