TOLEDO (WTVG) - If you're looking for some new journalistic talent to follow this election season, there's an 11-year-old right here in Toledo who is probably on the top of your list. Jaden Jefferson, a student at Maumee Valley Country Day, is going viral after joining the press pool during Elizabeth Warren's recent stop in Toledo.
Jaden got in a few questions during the press availability after the event and even scored an exclusive interview with the presidential candidate.
And he's got the respect of his fellow reporters as well. CNN Political Reporter, MJ Lee, snapped a photo of the young journalist covering the event and it's going viral. As of this writing, he is up over 11,000 followers on Twitter and has received encouragement from journalists all over the country.
