Cormorant, Minnesota, has a new mayor: Duke the dog

Inhabitants of the small town of Cormorant, Minnesota, recently set out to vote. It was time to elect a new honorary mayor, and everyone could vote for whoever they wanted. Many thought the owner of the store would win, but he didn’t even have half as many votes as the victor.

Meet Duke, a 7 year-old who is surely the fluffiest mayor in the country. He won a landslide victory and celebrated with an extensive grooming session and a new outfit. He does get paid for the job; a local pet store donated a year’s supply of kibble.
