When I was in the 8th grade my highest priority was convincing my mom to buy me new clothes at American Eagle after school. But Ethan Sonneborn has bigger fish to fry.

According to Fox, Ethan may appear to be your average 13-year-old boy who loves fishing and basketball. But Ethan also happens to be the youngest candidate to ever run for governor in Vermont state history.

I know what you are thinking: is this even legal? Well thanks to the lack of laws requiring gubernatorial (that's a two cent word, huh?) candidates to be a certain age, it is perfectly legal.

To some, Ethan is just a boy but I personally think hes THE MAN. He is not letting his age hinder his ability to stand up for what he believes is best for his state.

Even if you aren't a resident of The Green Mountain State, you should follow Ethan's political journey on his campaign's Facebook page. Whether or not he wins, this young man is going places!
