Pete Buttigieg Announces Candidacy for President in 2020 Campaign

South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is officially running for the Democratic nomination for president.

Buttigieg is a fast-rising political star who has gone from receiving less than 1% of support to standing among candidates like Senators Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker.

Buttigieg’s message Sunday focused on two topics: The need for generational change in the country and the idea that he is an entirely different political figure at a time when the American people are looking for something different in their politics.

Buttigieg is an Afghanistan war veteran and a Harvard grad, and the first openly gay presidential candidate.
