DORSET, Minn. (AP) - A 6-year-old boy who served two terms as mayor of his tiny northern Minnesota tourist town is endorsing his 3-year-old brother in this year’s race.

Robert “Bobby” Tufts won the election for mayor in Dorset in 2012 and 2013, but lost his bid for a third consecutive term last year to a 16-year-old boy. WCCO-TV (https://cbsloc.al/1JrotpM ) reports Bobby’s brother, James, is now running for the ceremonial position.

During Bobby’s tenure as mayor, he helped raise money for charity and declared ice cream a necessary food. He’s advising James during his campaign, including on how to talk to voters and shake their hands.

Voting takes place Sunday during the Taste of Dorset festival, and people can vote as many times as they like at $1 per vote. The winner is drawn at random.
