A Dog In Minnesota Has Been Elected Mayor For The Third Time
Minnesota has a history of electing wildly unqualified honorary mayors.By Samantha Crook | August 23, 2016
It's one thing to elect a dog as mayor. It's another to elect a dog as a mayor three times. But that's what happened to Duke.
The 9-year-old Great Pyrenees was first elected as a write-in candidate in a small town in Minnesota in 2014 — and he beat the human competition.
"Now, Richard, you were a candidate along with Duke. How do you feel after that election?" a reporter asked a former mayoral candidate. "Well, it was really depressing at first, but I'm getting over it real good," he told TV3.
