South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg tweeted out a video Thursday morning preempting his official campaign kickoff on April 14.

So far, Buttigieg only launched an exploratory committee to gauge interest in a possible bid.

The young, previously unknown mayor has had something of a moment recently, raising a respectable $7 million in the first two months of his campaign.
