    It is not obvious how his last name should be pronounced. (Answer: Boot-edge-edge or Boot-a-judge, accent on the ‘Boot.’)

    He ran unsuccessfully for chair of the Democratic National Committee (2017).
    He got along fine with Mike Pence when he was a mayor and Pence a governor, but launched a feud with him after Pence became Veep and he became a potential presidential candidate.

    When elected, he was the youngest mayor of any US city with a population of 100,000 or more.
