    The Democrats, including Cuomo, are not amused.

    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.
