Dog Elected Mayor Of Cormorant, Minnesota — Again

So on the lighter side of things, we have the most popular politician in the country. Now going on to serve his third term as mayor, meet Duke.



Duke may be the most popular politician in America, winning re-election for a landmark third time in a landslide.

What’s his secret? Probably the fact that he’s a dog, and everyone loves dogs.

In a vote held over the weekend, the 9-year-old Great Pyrenees won his third consecutive term as mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota. Voters paid $1 each to cast ballots in the election, which was held during the annual “Cormorant Daze” festival.

“Everybody voted for Duke, except for one vote for his girlfriend, Lassie,” David Rick, Duke’s owner, told local ABC station WDAY.

I wonder what policy issues swayed that one vote to vote for Lassie over Duke.

Mutt turns mayor in small town Minnesota

In the dog-eat-dog political scene of Cormorant, Duke is the alpha.

"Three years ago, it happened by accident, it was a write in vote. You pay a dollar and you can vote," said David Rick, Duke's Owner.

Now at the end of his second term, locals say the hairy honcho has one of the highest approval ratings in the country.

Duke dug for a few extra votes before his reelection bid today, but most political experts agree he's got a leg up on the competition.

"I don't know who would run against him, because he's done such great things for the community," said Karen Nelson, Cormorant.

Duke was too busy with last minute campaigning for an interview, but his media people say the incumbent is more than ready for a third term.


And what is does the victor do after winning three back-to-back mayoral elections? BELLY RUBS!

His first act after being re-elected? A nice victory pet.

Whomever owns duke is the real puppet master. Just like in other political arenas where the lap dog is really just a mouthpiece.

Speak Duke, speak!

Woof new taxes, woof more debt, endless woof war!

Good boy, Duke.

A chihuahua wouldn't get a third term. He'd be impeached two weeks after the election after everyone got tired of all his yapping.

Maybe he should run for president. He is more honest than any of the candidates and will cost the taxpayer a lot less in salaries. He could pee on the bills he does not like and chew out the pork from all of the bills that need approval.

Sounds like what we need in the White House. Presently dogs in the White House have no power, that seems like discrimination to me. Why elect a deceitful woman for president when you can elect a president who is guaranteed never to lie. This dog is White, he should live in a White House.

Duke is probably more competent than the corruptible spirit of man

Now that answers that old question re: Jesse Ventura and Al Franken.. Can Trump duplicate Jesse The Body?

You know things are screwed up when "Pro Wrestling" is more "real" than American Politics...

The irony on this one is like a new Buck™ knife, razor sharp..

Used to spend my summers up at Cormorant in the 90's. It's a lake town that grows by a thousand in the summer and is deserted by late fall. The mayor is more of a formality than anything, but good for Duke. Had some good times up on the lakes out there

Too bad he's not running for President. Humans could learn a lot from animals...they're far better at solving their problems than we, despite the lack of opposing thumbs.

No surprise coming from the state that elected a pro-wrestler(ventura), a third-rate comedian (franken), michelle bachman...and one of the few states to pick Rubio in the republican primary.
