Will Pete Buttigieg drop out before the Indiana primary?


Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana declared his Democratic presidential primary candidacy early in 2019 and enjoyed an impressive rise in name recognition and campaign contributions. As of mid-July 2019 he stands at around 5% in the polling averages. It is still early, but the field is crowded and many other strong candidates have a path to the nomination.

By May 5, 2020, when Indiana's primary is scheduled to take place, most of the Democratic primary electorate will have already voted and the party convention will be little more than two months away.

Will Pete Buttigieg have dropped out of the Presidential race before voting opens in Indiana's primary election?

This resolves positive if before the 2020 Indiana Democratic primary, Pete Buttigieg has claimed to no longer intend to participate in as a candidate in the 2020 presidential elections. The 2020 Indiana Democratic primary is currently scheduled for Tuesday, May 5, 2020, but this could change. Resolution should be supported by credible news reports.
