A toddler from New Jersey who was seen on YouTube crying because he couldn't be Governor of NJ will now lead the state, sort of.

Gov. Chris Christie will sign a proclamation Wednesday making Jesse Koczon the state's honorary governor for the day. The child is seen on the video crying and after his mom asks him what is wrong he responds, "Cause everyone tells me I'm too small to be the governor of New Jersey." Christie responded on Twitter: "Don't worry Jesse, people gave plenty of reasons why I couldn't be Governor, though being too small wasn't one of them."
