Could Gritty have a future in politics? Some people in New Jersey apparently think so.
The Philadelphia Flyers' mascot earned 14 write-in votes from residents in Camden, N.J. in the midterm elections, according to Michael Blinn of the New York Post. There was a pair of votes for Gritty to be county sheriff and another two for the U.S. House in N.J. District 1.
A graphic shown on the video board at Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night claimed that Gritty received write-in votes in 46 states, though there has been no confirmation of that yet.
