Should Buttigieg(D) challenge Donnelly(D) for the US Senate seat an Indiana? [View all]

Should this progressive, popular mayor from a successful industrial town, challenge the current Senator in Indiana as one of the first moves in a Tea Party of the left movement?

I personally think he should take the opportunity and vie for the 2020 Democratic nomination to challenge dumpster fire or pence
