South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg namedropped for Presidential run in 2020

Speculation about the 2020 Presidential race is already ramping up for the Democratic Party, and one name up for speculation stands out locally.

An NBC News online article titled “Everyone’s Running for President 2020” discusses the dozens of Democratic names that have been mentioned as potential challengers to President Donald Trump in 2020.

Nearly three-dozen images of potential Democratic canidates appears in the article, including South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. The “compelling young mayor”, as the article describes him as, will headline the Progress Iowa Corn Feed next month.

But his name is one of many among speculation, ranging from political names like former Vice-President Joe Biden and current Senator Bernie Sanders to non-political names like Facebook‘s Mark Zuckerberg and outspoken businessman Mark Cuban.
