Should Millenials Be Allowed to Run for President?

There are just a few legal requirements for anyone who wants to run for president of the United States.

You must be a natural born citizen, you must have lived in the US for at least 14 years, and you must be at least 35 years of age.

Well, there's now a campaign to change one of those requirements: the age limit.

Captain Morgan has launched the #Under35POTUS campaign and petition to lower the minimum age requirement to run for president.

"Millennials have replaced Boomers as America’s most populous and most influential generation, with more than 75.4 million in the US alone," according to a press release for the campaign. "Ranging from 21-34, some of our country’s most important technological, creative, and economic advancements can be directly attributed to this age group Yet the very people who are changing the face of the nation are ineligible to hold the nation’s highest political office."

And the idea is getting noticed.

Comedian Akilah Hughes teamed up with the web-based comedy network Jash to make a documentary surrounding the #Under35POTUS movement, which includes conversations with influential figures like Senator Bernie Sanders, 28-year-old politician Justin Fareed, and Emerson Spartz, the 29-year-old CEO of Dose.
