‘MAYOR PETE’ JOINS RACE AS FACE OF A NEW GEN­ER­A­TION

The Day - - FRONT PAGE -

South Bend, Ind. — Pete But­tigieg, the lit­tle-known In­di­ana mayor who has risen to promi­nence in the early stages of the 2020 Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial race, made his of­fi­cial cam­paign en­trance Sun­day by claim­ing the man­tle of a youth­ful gen­er­a­tion ready to reshape the coun­try.

“I rec­og­nize the au­dac­ity of do­ing this as a Mid­west­ern mil­len­nial mayor,” he said to cheers of “Pete, Pete, Pete” from an au­di­ence as­sem­bled in a for­mer Stude­baker auto plant. “More than a lit­tle bold, at age 37, to seek the high­est of­fice in the land.”
