South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) on Sunday officially announced his intent to run for president. The move was anticipated but Democrats seemed surprised at how well Buttigieg delivered his speech. 

Even his communications person, Lis Smith, confirmed the questions she frequently receives from reporters.

But more than anything, Democrats, especially on the progressive side, seem excited by Buttiegieg's announcement. Quite a few compared him to Barack Obama. 

Those who support LGBTQ rights were overcome with joy because Buttigieg is the first openly gay presidential candidate.

Buttigieg is definitely going to play the "Millennial Mayor" card, which will be interesting to watch.
