Duke the dog elected Minnesota's Cormorant town mayor again

August 29th, 2016

Duke the dog has been voted Cormorant town mayor for the third time running. 

The town of about 1,000 residents voted for the Pyrenean Mountain Dog last weekend.

Duke was first elected back in 2014 with 12 written votes at the Cormorant Daze festival. His human opponent at the time, Richard Sherbrook, admitted he too voted for the canine.

Duke’s caretaker Karen Nelson and her family believes the pooch continues to win over voters because he does such great work for the community.

DOGS Life has been unable to reach Duke for a comment.
