SOUTH BEND —
Indiana's primary election is 12 weeks from Tuesday.
Monday one of the Democratic candidates for South Bend mayor picked up a major boost.
Current mayor Pete Buttigieg endorsed James Mueller as his pick to replace him.
Mueller currently serves as executive director of community investment after serving as chief of staff. He says he wants to build on the work he's done with the Buttigieg administration.
"We've got a good team and we're going to bring our message right out to the voters, knocking on doors, talking to them directly. And we believe we have the proven track record of results and a vision for the future,” said James Mueller, (D) Candidate for South Bend mayor.
Mueller faces seven other candidates for the Democratic nomination in the primary May 7. Only one Republican has filed to run.
