A small town mayor from South Bend Indiana has entered the 2020 race. His name is Pete Buttigieg. His name is a bit hard to pronounce but apparently everyone calls him “Mayor Pete”.
Why am I talking about him here? He is 37 years old.
There has been some talk about my favorite congresswoman running for President but we all know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (or AOC as I call her) is a bit too young at the moment. But there is a reason I like her so much. She is speaking about issues in ways that I agree with whole-heartedly. She is also young and I’m super tired of old, entrenched politicians. I want new, fresh perspectives. I want someone young!
So is Mayor Pete a progressive? This remains to be seen but I am keeping my eye on this guy!
