Minnesota town gone to the dogs as canine elected mayor.
A MINNESOTA town has literally gone to the dogs, electing a canine as their mayor.
Perhaps it was his shiny, flowing locks or his lovable friendly nature. Whatever the reason, Duke is now the honorary mayor of Cormorant.
Despite not having an election campaign, the four legged seven-year-old won by a landslide according to locals.
The Independent reported that 12 people in Cormorant each paid a dollar to cast the votes that saw Duke emerge as the overall winner.
Voters said Duke guards the town and makes the community safer, even ensuring cars do not break the speed limit.
