Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) announced Friday that its most famous rescued dolphin, Winter, star of the #1 box office hit Dolphin Tale, has filed to be a candidate for the President of the United States. 

Due to the overreaching negativity in the overall electorate, Winter and her party, the 3R Party (also known as the Rescue, Rehab and Release Party), will have a completely positive campaign, and will address key issues that pertain to marine life, the environment, special needs children, and wounded soldiers, all key parts of the CMA mission. Winter will also be announcing a full advisory Cabinet soon.

Since being rescued in December 2005, Winter has defied all odds by surviving and thriving after losing her tail from entanglement in a crab trap rope. Having successfully adapted to a prosthetic tail and becoming a generational inspiring story to millions around the world via the Dolphin Tale movies, Winter desires to show the world a new form of positive leadership. With campaign slogans of “Winter, the Dolphin That Can”, “Make America Cute Again” and “I’m With Winter”, she is in full campaign mode.

Upon reaching the 1 million vote total, CMA has secured sponsorship to fly 21 year-old Stephanie Evans for a repeat visit with her hero, Winter. 

Evans, of Brownsburg, Indiana, just completed a double kidney-liver transplant and is in recovery. During her multi-year ordeal of waiting for a donor, Stephanie visited Winter every few months as her symptoms improved after each visit.  She now wants to make a return visit to complete her healing process.

This is the first time anyone, of any age, from any country, can vote in a U.S. Presidential election.  To learn more about this campaign and to vote, Winter fans need to log onto  Voters can vote up to ten times per day per device.   Change is in the air, and the water!
