HOUSTON, Texas — Presidential candidate Cthulhu and his entourage arrived early at the Johnson Space Center in Texas for an unscheduled and secretive meeting.

At 6 p.m. Cthulhu, his campaign manager Eminence Waite, and several aides arrived at JSC B5 to meet with unspecified officials of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Speaking off the record, a NASA spokesperson said that visits from politicians and interested entities are rare enough that “we’re happy to get any kind of attention.” As for the specifics of the Cthulhu meeting, they could only say it was an off-the-record discussion between interested parties on a “topic of current relevance.”

One observer, who also asked not to named, said that two of Cthulhu’s aides carried chrome cases into the meeting. Representatives of the shadowy investment group 10Tech, LLC, were also in attendance.

Pressed for a statement, Ms. Waite, normally forthcoming on any topic, would only say, “Patience.”
