A 12-year-old is running a campaign office in Jefferson County, Colorado for Donald Trump, a local Fox affiliate, KDVR, reported on Sunday.

The boy’s name is Weston Imer, and he is running Trump’s campaign operations not only in an important battleground state, but in one of the most important, populous counties in Colorado.

In one of the most important counties in swing state Colorado, Donald Trump is relying on 12-year-old Weston Imer, who runs the Jefferson County operation for the Trump campaign.

Jefferson County is one of the most populous counties in Colorado and is part of the Denver metro area.

Imer is in charge of operations in the office. He organizes the volunteers to help conduct get out the vote efforts for the Republican presidential nominee.

Imer is in charge of the operation where volunteers will gather and help get out the vote, and while sitting behind a desk may not be the coolest thing to do, he hopes to use the position to inspire others.

"Get involved," Imer said. "That’s what I’m going to say. Get involved. Kids need to be educated."

Due to his young age, Imer has to go back to school in Septemer, but he hopes to run the campaign office until then.

School starts for Weston Imer in September, and he hopes to lead the field office until then, recruiting friends and making Trump–who he has met–proud.

Imer said that he was considering a presidential run of his own in 2040, with Barron Trump as his running mate.

"Watch for me–2040," Imer said. "And Barron Trump, if you are watching, in 2040 I’ll take you as my running mate."

KDVR noted that in 2040, even though Imer would be of age, Trump would be short by a few months of the 35-year-old threshold dictated by the Constitution.
