South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg officially announced on Sunday his candidacy for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2020.
They call me Mayor Pete,” Buttigieg said.
The South Bend mayor has criticized President Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again” as a means of clinging to America’s past instead moving the country forward.
A poll for the Pennsylvania primary released Friday found that “Mayor Pete” ranked in the top five in the state, while another poll released this week found that Buttigieg also ranks in the top five Democrats in the critical Iowa Democrat presidential caucus.
Buttigieg even beat out Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the New Hampshire primary polls released this week.
