South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg says all signs are pointing towards a presidential run in 2020. Buttigieg said on Fox News Sunday that he rolled out the exploratory committee two months ago "to see what the response would be to the idea of a Midwestern, millennial mayor entering the conversation for President." He said he wanted to test the waters in terms of fundraising and interest among early primary states. This was because, according to him, he's not highly famous or personally wealthy, it takes time to get the organization in place for an official launch.
