Sen. Warren bringing 11-year-old to State of the Union address

Posted

BOSTON (AP) - U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is bringing one of her youngest campaign supporters to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.

Warren praised 11-year-old Cambridge resident Zev Dickstein as an example of the impact young people can have on their communities.

The Cambridge Street Upper School sixth-grader was nine when he began working on Warren's 2012 Senate campaign and said the experience propelled him into politics.

Warren isn't the only member of the Massachusetts delegation attending the speech with a guest.

U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas is bringing the new mayor of Lawrence, Daniel Rivera, and U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy has invited Jennifer Walsh, a Milford High School teacher who was named North America Special Olympics' 2013 Coach of the Year.
