BOSTON (AP) - Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg (BOO’-tuh-juhj) is scheduled to visit Boston for a conversation about millennials in politics.

The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is scheduled to speak at Northeastern University’s campus Wednesday as part of an event series profiling emerging leaders in media, politics and policy.

The Navy veteran and Rhodes scholar was elected mayor of South Bend in 2011 at age 29, making him the youngest mayor of a U.S. city with at least 100,000 residents. He was re-elected in 2015.

Buttigieg announced in January he was forming an exploratory committee for a 2020 presidential bid.

Northeastern is hosting him as part of a speaker series called “The Civic Experience.” He will be talking about the influence of millennials in driving the national political agenda.
