When you hear that music it means one thing, it's election time somewhere in America. Tonight we're focusing on a mayoral race in Minnesota in which the popular incumbent seeking re-election is not even old enough for kindergarten. Kevin Tibbles is on the campaign trail.
reporter: Election fever heat Dorsett, Minnesota, population 22. On the main drag pressing the flesh and handing out his card is mayor Bobby Tufts who is up for re-election. This pint size politician is a hit. at the ripe old age of 4 he already carries a big stick. Heck, who can argue with his platform.


If you're elected are we all going to get a free ice cream cone?
Yeah.
reporter: It's off to the parlor we go.
How many scoops do you want?
Five.
reporter: Mayor Bobby bellies up to the bar for a scoop of his favorite. He won the position last year when his name was pulled out of a hat. To vote here it will cost you a buck. you can put any name in the box. All proceeds go the annual town fair. So endorse it. Ballot box stuffing is encouraged.
I like meeting future mayors and kinds candidates of America.
reporter: Like most big shots bobby has a chauffeur. his goes by the name of mom who is flabbergasted by all the attention.
He was in print in London and Germany and that's just crazy my 4-year-old is a world traveller before me.
What time do mayors have to go to bed?
8:00.
reporter: Probing interviewers take a back seat to bugs and butterflies.
I've had a lot of guys get up from interviews with me before but never like this.
I'll give you my best.
Give me your best. Holy smokes. That wasn't mile.
reporter: The mayor unwinds with his rod and reel on the local lakes which is teaming with fish.
That fish was about two feet long.
Yeah, about 50.
50 feet fish? Now you sound like a real politician
reporter: Sadly after a dip in the lake it's nap time and we take our leave.
My name is Robert and I approve this message.
reporter: Vote for mayor bobby. He won't kiss your baby but he'll kiss your fish. Kevin Tibbles, NBC News, Dorsett, Minnesota.
