Meet the 12-Year-Old Running the Trump Campaign in This Vital Swing State
Donald Trump is trailing Hillary Clinton badly in Colorado, which despite being a "swing state" went for President Obama twice. And despite boasting that he'll change the electoral map, Trump is running a ground game in the Centennial State that can only be described as embarrassing, even for him.
According to St. Louis-based news station KMOV 4, Weston Imer runs the GOP nominee's campaign office in Jefferson County, Colorado, which is "part of the Denver metro area" and "one of the most populous counties in Colorado," KMOV notes. But Weston is just 12 years old.
Although it's fairly unusual, Weston's mother believes the experience is a good character building exercise. She's also the Jefferson County office's official campaign coordinator.
“You have a responsibility to your children to teach them,” she told KMOV.
And even if Trump loses, Weston's political engagement will continue, he says. In fact, the Colorado resident has big plans—including a 2040 presidential campaign. His running mate of choice? Barron Trump.
