It's duck season in the New York governor's race.
Republican Carl Paladino's campaign is sending a volunteer dressed in a duck suit to follow Democrat Andrew Cuomo as he campaigns around the state.
Paladino's duck -- dubbed Mario Junior -- is accusing Cuomo of "ducking'' questions about his position on health care reform.
Democrats are unimpressed. New York Democratic Committee chairman Jay Jacobs called Paladino a quack.
Paladino will face Rick Lazio in a Republican primary on September 14th.
