NEW YORK, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- Some U.S. elections on Nov. 2 will feature a donkey and pig squaring off for town mayor, and a woman who lives in her car, ABC News reported Monday.

The animal candidates are in Rabbit Hash, Ky., where Higgins the Donkey is on the ballot against LuLu the pot-bellied pig.

Oklahoma has a tight race for a Senate seat between traditional contenders, but polls show independent Sheila Bilyeu has 6 percent support. She lives in her car and claims the U.S. government has implanted a radio device in her head.

In Tennessee, embarrassed Republican Party officials are asking their faithful to vote for a rival write-in congressional candidate now that John Hart has announced his platform is a return to racial segregation.

Former Washington mayor Marion Barry is running again, this time for city council, and is considered a shoo-in. He was arrested in 1990 for smoking crack cocaine in a hotel room. The report said his main election pitch this year is asking female voters if they're single.
