14-year-old boy hopes to inspire with bid for governor of Vermont
BRISTOL, Vt. — Ethan Sonneborn found a creative way to spend his summer vacation — he's running for the governor of Vermont. There's no age requirement and anyone who has lived in the state for four years can run.
Ethan has been in the state for 14 years, his entire life.
"I recognized that there was a new movement of leadership that could be doing better... new leaders who could actually stand up and say racism is bad," he said.
Sonneborn doesn't think his age gets in the way, saying his campaign "transcends age." Running in a crowded Democratic primary, he is literally the kid at the adults table.
