14-year-old boy is ‘proud’ of campaign despite loss running for governor of Vermont

00:39

Ethan Sonneborn, 14, of Bristol, was one of the four Vermont Democrats seeking the party nomination to run for governor in the fall election. The Vermont Constitution doesn't have an age requirement for people seeking the state's highest office beyond having lived in the state for four years before the election, so Sonneborn qualified. Although he did not win the election he spoke out after saying he was proud of his campaign.
