Can This Indiana Mayor Win the 2020 Presidential Election?

The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, became the 10th Democratic candidate Wednesday to enter the 2020 race for president. Pete Buttigieg announced the launch of his exploratory committee in a video message to supporters, pledging a "fresh start" for America. For many candidates, an exploratory committee is a financial formality put in place before a formal announcement. Buttigieg was 29 when he was elected mayor of South Bend in 2011. The U.S. Navy veteran now is serving the eighth and final year of his tenure as the leader of Indiana's fourth-largest city.
