Buttigieg's campaign emphasizes his time as a naval intelligence officer in Afghanistan and his experience as a decision maker in the mayor's office; Mike Tobin reports from South Bend, Indiana.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Suddenly, the man to beat in the crowded field of Democrats running for president is Pete Buttigieg. The millennial and openly-gay candidate is impressing the nation as he polls double digits ahead of the rest of the field in Iowa and is in third place in New Hampshire. While he is credited with making some progress as mayor of South Bend, Indiana, his critics say he remains inexperienced, and it’s not enough to qualify him to become the leader of the free world.
Fox News traveled to the midwest rust belt city for a Buttigieg leadership series broadcast on Fox News’ "Special Report" to find out how South Bend residents feel about Mayor Pete.
Jody Freid, who spent most of her life in South Bend told Fox News, "I have seen South Bend grow. When you travel around the United States and the world and you mention South Bend, Indiana no one ever heard of South Bend until you mention [University of] Notre Dame. Now they know about South Bend and they mention Mayor Pete. She added, "He’s very thoughtful, he’s very controlled, he’s just amazing human being."
