Meet Minnesota's Newest Mayor: Duke the Dog Published: August 13, 2014

The new mayor of a Minnesota town is just 7-years-old, and he doesn’t say much.

Voters in Cormorant elected a dog named Duke by a landslide. The 12 people in the village each paid $1 to cast a vote, according to a CBS Minnesota affiliate.

After winning, Duke got five hours of grooming and a new outfit.
