One Minnesota town has put divisive partisan politics in the doghouse and instead has elected the first sensible candidate in years: a 7 year old dog named Duke. The village of Cormorant, MN this week elected Duke by a landslide. Duke, a jovial Great Pyrenees who likes outdoor sports, defeated local businessman Richard Sherbrook. In his concession speech, Sherbrook praised his rival, “There’s no question that he’ll do a good job representing the community.”
After his victory, Duke was treated to five hours of grooming after his victory and will receive a salary of a year’s supply of free dog food from Tuffy’s Pet Food store in the nearby village of Perham.
