Can South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg Win The Midwest?

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is garnering a lot of positive attention as he ramps up his campaign for the 2020 Presidential election.

Buttigieg stopped by Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night to discuss what it will take to for Democrats to 'win back' the Midwest and oust President Trump from the Oval Office.

“The paradox here is that in order to beat Trump, we’ve gotta run a campaign that’s not all about Trump," said Buttigieg. "The more it's about him, I think folks at home are gonna be saying 'Who's talking about me?' Don’t get me wrong, you’ve got to punch back when you’re punched. You’ve got to correct lies when he tells lies, but then we’ve got to move on very quickly to how our ideas cash out in everyday life.”

While the majority of media outlets and political pundits are focused on how Mayor Buttigieg presents his position on key issues, WIBC host Tony Katz is paying attention to what the 37-year-old democrat is actually saying.

 Katz digs into Buttigieg's comments to Bill Maher in today's Popcorn Moment.
