Buttigieg calls for ‘a new American spring’ in campaign launch
By Michael Burke – 04/14/19
Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., on Sunday officially launched his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, calling for “a new American spring.”
“You and I have the chance to usher in a new American spring,” he told a crowd of supporters at a rally in South Bend. “So with hope in our hearts and with fire in our bellies, let’s get to work and let’s make history.”
Buttigieg, 37, made the announcement almost three months after launching an exploratory committee.
“My name is Pete Buttigieg. They call me Mayor Pete,” he said. “I am a proud son of South Bend, Indiana, and I am running for president of the United States.”
