12-year-old Running Trump Campaign Office In Colorado

Trump is doing awful in Colorado, but don't blame this kid.

I guess they really are starved for field operatives in Colorado, where Trump now finds himself down double-digits to Hillary Clinton. Ironically, it's because younger voters have deserted him there. Trump runs behind Gary Johnson of the Libertarians among those under 30.

WHEAT RIDGE, CO (KDVR/CNN) - Donald Trump's campaign has some young blood among its leadership.

And by young, that means 12 years old.

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 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."

Imer's mother, Laurel Imer, is the official field coordinator on paper, but she wants to give her son most of the responsibility and help show other parents - Democrat or Republican - how to get their kids involved.

UPDATE: This same little angel had earlier made threatening phone calls on Trump's behalf.
