Q: So what does your hometown, South Bend, mean to you?

Well, this is a town that shaped me. And it's a community that I think reflects a lot of what's happening in America more generally. We’re a diverse community, we're experiencing economic change. And I think the way that this community which has had major struggles, but the way this community has managed to find a way to grow… is a good example of how the whole country can find a way forward at a time when it's been divided, and struggling to deal with change.
