Duke the Dog Elected Mayor of Small Minnesota Village: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A small Minnesota village has a new mayor. Duke, the dog is Cormorant`s newest mayor.

The 12 people who live there elected the 7-year-old dog as its leader.


He won`t be getting a salary, but a pet store has agreed to donate a year`s supply of food to reward Duke for his service."


The town of Cormorant has gone to the dogs ... literally. The small Minnesota village has elected Duke the dog as their new mayor.

Duke is a dignified pooch, but truth be told he can be bribed with a doggie treat.

Duke seems to be oblivious to all the publicity, he just walks around town bringing joy to all the humans he meets along the way.

Duke doesn`t clean up when he poops, but unlike Obama you don`t need a dump truck to pick up the crap he leaves behind.
