Event description

Description

Heartland politics: rather than a monolithic “flyover country,” the midwestern voting public can be—as both parties learned during the last presidential election—stubbornly elusive. Who better to make that point than an openly gay, Millennial war veteran serving his second term as Democratic mayor in a Rust Belt state that Trump won by 20 percent? Pete Buttigieg, who was elected mayor of South Bend, Indiana, in 2011 at the age of 29, has been described by the Washington Post as “the most interesting mayor you’ve never heard of” and by the New York Times as “the perfect Democratic candidate.” He visits Scripps to discuss his new book, Shortest Way Home, which details his visionary work in South Bend and its implications for the future of America. Peter Hamby, political journalist and current head of news at Snapchat, joins him for a conversation.
