Pete Buttigieg, the little-known IN mayor who has risen to prominence IN the early stages of the 2020 Democratic presidential race, made his official campaign entrance Sunday by claiming the mantle of youthful generation ready to reshape the country.

In a former Studebaker automobile building in downtown South Bend, the 37-year-old former Rhodes scholar and veteran of the war in Afghanistan became the latest Democrat to join the crowded field for 2020. But she's also the leader of the Democratic Party - at least until it chooses a candidate to challenge Trump's bid for re-election.

Buttigieg began his remarks in South Bend by thanking the crowd, his family, and his husband Chasten, then delivered a lengthy ode to the town itself. Kamala Harris at 17% and Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen.

Eleven percent said they support South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

The Sanders campaign did not answer questions about his income for this story. "That's why, this time, it's not just about winning an election - it's about winning an era".

Buttigieg is expected to formally announce his campaign on Sunday.

"We can pronounce any name if it belongs to a person who belongs to us", she said. "I can not wait to see a new governor in the state of IL".

Buttigieg is planning to return this week in early-voting Iowa and New Hampshire - but now as a full-fledged candidate who's being taken more seriously.

In a historic first, black, gay woman elected Chicago mayor
The next mayor of Chicago is a former prosecutor who has not held elected office before. I know one mayor can't do that by herself, but I don't have many expectations of her.

The popular mayor who speaks eight languages and plays classical piano has been the focus of countless news stories and profiles.

A majority of Democrats do not think former Vice President Joe Biden should be counted out as a 2020 candidate, despite multiple allegations of inappropriate touching.

He has had headline-grabbing moments, the most recent being his faith-based challenge of Vice President Mike Pence´s conservative views on same-sex marriage and LGBT rights. "I wrote a best-selling book", Sanders said, when the NYT reporter reminded him of his own wealth.

"I don't have a problem with religion, I'm religious too. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator".

Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyoming, released a letter he wrote to the Congressional Budget Office seeking clarity on the exact cost of Sanders' plan, which he characterized as "a massive amount of spending".

"You are creating a not-for-profit public option that is good, high-quality healthcare now", the NY senator said.

In an unlikely feat, the city has reversed decades of population decline and attracted new businesses and development, with the mayor´s popularity growing in the process.

As mayor of South Bend since 2012, he has presided over an economic turnaround that has brought new investment into the struggling northwestern IN industrial town, an achievement likely to be a central plank of his presidential campaign. Meanwhile, Buttigieg received 12% support with this demographic, which is notable given he was a stranger to national politics just a few months ago.
