A new grassroots movement based in Washington, DC hopes to encourage South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg to run in the 2020 presidential election.
The movement has no association with Buttigieg or his campaign. Mark Meier lives in Washington DC, and launched the effort, despite never meeting the South Bend mayor. But, he says Buttigieg has a lot of the qualities the Democratic Party needs in a candidate. He said it all began when he read an article about the mayor.
