Indiana Mayor joins United States presidential race

Former vice president Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders

"More than a little bold - at age 37 - to seek the highest office in the land", he added.

The singular difference between the two Rhodes scholars turned every man emblems in the embers of their respective forgotten cities was that Buttigieg is still the mayor of his, while Booker - apparently in search of foreign policy credentials and a more expansive demonstration of power potential - left the Newark mayoralty in 2013 to ensnare a senate seat.

"The forces changing our country today are tectonic", he said. He would win the election in 2020, he would be the youngest and the first openly gay President in the history of the country.

Financial support from the LGBT community has helped Buttigieg defy expectations by raking in more than $7 million in just over two months.

Guests attend a rally with Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center on April 06, 2019 in Fairfield, Iowa. Some polls put him behind only Vermont Sen.

Lilly Jay, a survivor of sexual assault in college who came to the White House in 2014 as part of Vice President Joe Biden's It's On Us campaign, said in a new op-ed in Slate on Monday that she felt "duped" when she read of other women's allegations of inappropriate touching against Biden. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Elizabeth Warren of MA.

"Right now, it's pretty fun", Buttigieg told The Associated Press last month while visiting SC, where he was met by larger-than-expected crowds.

Buttigieg's challenge in the coming months: translating this meteoric momentum and goodwill among Democrats who are eager to cheer a confident, youthful voice from the Midwest into a sustained national campaign that can outpace candidates whose careers have made them popular with activists and donors.

Bruni praised his work as mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and asked if he could eventually be elected as 'the first gay president'.

Pete Buttigieg, an Afghanistan war veteran, is aiming to become the first openly gay United States president.

Early in his first term Buttigieg set a goal to knock down 1,000 blighted houses in a thousand days - which the city exceeded.

"To tell him that one rainy April day, before he even turns 40, he'll wake up to headlines about whether he's rising too quickly into becoming a top tier contender for the American presidency". Theodore Roosevelt was 42 when he took office, while John F. Kennedy was 43 and Bill Clinton 46.

The political opponents worked together on common-ground issues like infrastructure but clashed over a 2015 religious freedom bill signed by Pence that Buttigieg and others warned allowed people to discriminate on religious grounds.

"I came back, honestly because of Pete and I've seen a lot of my friends do that and a lot of people who didn't grow up here that want to come to South Bend", she said.

During his speech, he promised to create a new narrative, one he says will "tell a different story than "Make America Great Again"- taking a few digs at current President Donald Trump. "It comes from people who think the only way to speak to communities like ours is through resentment and nostalgia".

There were thousands of people just like Jessica in the audience traveling across the country to catch a glimpse of history from Manhattan to OR to Denver to right here in South Bend.

South Bend residents Angie Faccenda and her husband Phil have known Buttigieg personally since he ran for state treasurer nine years ago. Still, some of the weather followed indoors because of a leaky roof.

"I wrote a best-selling book", he said.

On Sunday, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, officially announced his presidential bid.

The love bug candidate reserved his toughest talk for the National Rifle Association (NRA), vowing to fight the gun lobby while bucking up those medium-sized cities that both he and Buttigieg claim as their special province of influence: Pittsburgh, said Booker, Parkland, Charleston.
