Five-year-old Bobby Tufts of Dorset, Minnesota has been in the news for the past two years . . . because he was elected MAYOR when he was just three years old.
Well . . . "elected" is kind of a strong word. Dorset only has a population of 25, so they don't really need a mayor . . . anyone who wants to be mayor puts their name in a hat and they pick one out.
Bobby won that drawing in back-to-back years . . . he won two years ago AND last year. So he's been the mayor of Dorset for two terms.
But over the weekend, Bobby LOST his re-election bid . . . 16-year-old Eric Mueller had HIS name drawn out of the hat, so he's the mayor now. Hope you're happy, Eric Mueller . . . your first act as mayor was breaking a little kid's heart.
