8-Year-old becomes governor for a day

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Wednesday an eight-year-old won the chance to run the state of Maryland for a day.

The soon-to-be 4th grader won an essay contest and took over the governor's job.

Governor Genea Harrison's first official duty was fielding questions from the media. After that, the mini-governor had a meeting with the Taiwan Ambassador.

"It is the responsibility of leaders in this room to nurture the dreams and confidence of young women like Genea," said Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley.

The pint-sized politician says if she does not become governor one day, she wants to be a science teacher.
