Pete Buttigieg officially announces 2020 presidential campaign
If elected, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana would be the first-ever openly gay and youngest-ever U.S. president.
By Adam Edelman

"Buttigieg unveiled the three-pronged campaign message that he’s been sharing in bars in living rooms in recent weeks in the early-voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina: Security (“the idea that security and patriotism belong to one political party needs to end now”) and democracy (“no issue we care about, from gun safety to immigration, from climate to education to paid family leave, will be handled well unless our democracy is in better shape.”)"
"Buttigieg had previously launched a presidential exploratory committee in January, leading to a barrage of television interviews and newspaper articles highlighting his diverse résumé. Buttigieg, the son of two Notre Dame University professors, attended Harvard; went on to become a Rhodes Scholar; did a stint at the consulting firm McKinsey & Co.; was elected as the mayor of South Bend at the age of 29; took a leave of absence during his first term to serve in Afghanistan as a naval intelligence officer; came out as gay in a column in his local newspaper a few months before his re-election; was re-elected with nearly 80 percent of the vote; married his partner Chasten in a church ceremony that was live-streamed on the Internet; and wrote a best-selling book."
"The men and women who got in my vehicle, they didn’t care if I was a Democrat or a Republican,” Buttigieg said about his time in Afghanistan as a Navy intelligence officer."

Mayor Buttigieg (Boot-edge-edge) is becoming a lot more well known throughout America. The young, good-looking Mayor also enjoys great support from citizens that like what he is all about and what he is going to do for America. In the red State of Texas, even Mayor Adler, the Austin, Texas Mayor recently endorsed him with great words of wisdom. We can expect to hear a lot more from the talented, hard-working and savvy Mayor as time goes on and he becomes even better known all across the country.

He doesn't have much of a chance.

His fans are now saying he's a new Obama, smooth talking, young, charismatic.

He's climbing the polls so lets see what the other side digs up on him...
