Pete Buttigieg will be the first 2020 presidential candidate to visit Maine

Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, will hold a “grassroots event” in Portland on Aug. 22, marking the first Maine visit by a presidential candidate ahead of the 2020 election.

Buttigieg, 37, who is one of 24 well-known Democrats running for the nomination to face President Donald Trump, announced this weekend he would hold an event in Maine’s largest city. His campaign is releasing the name of venue only to people who have bought tickets, but one attendee said it would be at the State Theatre.

The mayor’s candidacy has been a surprising one, so far besting that of three senators and Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City, which is nearly 84 times more populous than the Indiana city of just over 100,000 that Buttigieg has run since 2012. He is polling fifth in the Democratic field, according to RealClearPolitics averages.

Nominating races are typically sleepy in Maine, but the state may draw more attention after a switch from party-run caucuses to primaries this year. Democrats will use the optional primary, which is set for March 3 along with expected “Super Tuesday” contests in more than a dozen other states.
