Republican Senator Thom Tillis from North Carolina thinks that dogs can show people how we can all come together with a Halloween costume contest for puppers. In fact, Tillis put the rumor to rest on Wednesday when he tweeted that the #bipawtisanship event was going to be reality.

The contest will be held on Halloween, and dogs from both sides of party lines (their owners too!) are invited to join Senator Tillis in front of his office on Capitol Hill.

Tilly is an adorable Boston Terrier who belongs to one of Senator Tillis’s staffers. Often, Senator Tillis has brought Tilly to Senate lunches, and was shamelessly promoting her votes in tweets. Calling her the “Cutest dog on the hill,” he was clearly lobbying for Tilly’s leverage in the Cutest Dog On The Hill contest.

Can’t wait to see what adorable Tilly comes dressed as for the costume contest!
