SOUTH BEND, Ind.–The ballot for president of the United States in the next election could include a name from Indiana. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, has talked with former Pres. Obama about the possibility of running for president in 2020, reported CNN.

CNN also reported that Obama has met with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders; Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren; former Vice President Joe Biden; former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick; New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker; former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu; Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti; former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander; and former Attorney General Eric Holder.

Buttigieg has been a favorite of Democrats nationally, not just in Indiana.

Obama, meanwhile, is not giving potential candidates advice, but is trying to figure out what strategy might work for Democrats with Donald Trump in the White House.

Democrats are anticipating a wide field of candidates in the 2020 election.
