On January 23, 2019, Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced the formation of an exploratory committee to run for President of the United States in the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries.[1] He had been drawing speculation as a potential candidate, notably visiting the early caucus state of Iowa in December 2018, where he announced he would not run for reelection as mayor in 2019.[2] If elected, he would be the first openly gay president as well as the youngest elected at age 38, and the youngest serving at age 39.[1]
