Meet The 14-year-old Running For Governor In The US

14-year-old Ethan Sonneborn who isn’t old enough to vote, let alone drive, is running for governor’s seat in Vermont, US.

According to NDTV, the Vermont Democrat is taking of a quirk in the constitution of the bucolic northeastern state that imposes no age limit on running for governor.

Candidates only have to have lived in Vermont for at least four years, and Sonneborn has lived in Vermont for 14-years.

In a recent televised gubernatorial forum, the teenager said: “I think Vermonters should take me seriously because I have practical progressive ideas, and I happen to be 14, not the other way around. I think that my message and my platform transcend age.”

Ethan will face a crowded field of adult rivals in Tuesday’s Democratic gubernatorial primary.

His rivals include Christine Hallquist, running to become America’s first transgender governor, James Ehlers, a Navy veteran and environmentalist, and Brenda Siegel, the executive director of a dance festival.
