4-Year-Old Chosen as Mayor

Minnesota Town Chooses a 4-Year-Old as Mayor

Robert "Bobby" Tufts may not be the first 4-year-old we know who rules the roost, but he's certainly the only one who has officially been put in charge! After a two-month campaign that his mom says he took very seriously, the kindergartener was recently chosen to be mayor of his hometown, Dorset, MN.

Watch him do his thing, below.
