  • Retro ballot for Illinois voters: 13 presidential candidates to be listed — 9 more than still in the mix

    The Chicago Sun-TImes ^ | March 17, 2020 | Tina Sfondeles
    Illinois voters will still face a dizzying choice of 13 presidential candidates if they choose to vote in the state’s Democratic Primary — even though less than a handful are still in the race. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg became the latest to fold his candidacy on Wednesday, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is said to be reassessing her run. But both names are on early voting touch screens and will appear on March 17 ballots. With the dust still settling from Super Tuesday, the remaining candidates probably have other concerns than losing a few sympathy votes to departed...

    It seems so long ago that the first openly gay candidate won the Iowa caucuses. Mere weeks later, the Pete Buttigieg campaign is now past tense, as the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced Sunday that he was dropping out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Wherever that leaves Buttigieg and his future political prospects — or any future LGBTQ candidate — this moment affords us an opportunity to ask ourselves where the nation as a whole really is in terms of acceptance of LGBTQ candidates. To be clear, I’m not arguing that Buttigieg was unsuccessful only...
  • Biden: Buttigieg 'reminds me of my son Beau'

    Joe Biden complimented former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at a rally Monday night after Buttigieg announced his endorsement of the former vice president, telling attendees that the 38-year-old reminds him of his late son, Beau Biden. With Buttigieg standing beside him, the former Delaware senator said the remark was the "highest compliment" he could give another person. Biden's eldest son — like Buttigieg, a military veteran — died from brain cancer in 2015.

    Mean Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign is over, and how lucky we are to be rid of that nasty piece of work. Never forget that the failed mayor of South Bend, Indiana, launched his failed presidential bid with hate, bigotry, and lies. And then, after his hate, bigotry, and lies earned him enough attention from a media that thrive on such things, the Mean Little Mayor morphed into one of the biggest presidential phonies ever. But the hate came first… You see, if you want to win attention from the fake news media, spewing hate at Christians is an...

    Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is set to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential race one day after suspending his own campaign, according to a source close to the Biden campaign. Buttigieg's planned endorsement comes as another moderate former presidential contender, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), also plans to throw her support behind Biden after she dropping out on Monday. The latest endorsements for Biden point to a consolidation of the moderate lane of the Democratic race in an effort to block progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) from getting the nomination. SNIP

    Washington (CNN)Pete Buttigieg is weighing whether to endorse Joe Biden after exiting the Democratic presidential race late Sunday night and later speaking on the phone with the former vice president and former President Barack Obama. An endorsement for Biden is likely, two people close to Buttigieg say, but whether he makes the decision before Super Tuesday is unclear.

    Moments after former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg told supporters he's ending his presidential campaign Sunday, President Trump said it reflected the growing pressure among more moderate Democrats to consolidate in order to blunt the rise of progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. Trump tweeted: "Pete Buttigieg is OUT. All of his SuperTuesday votes will to Sleepy Joe Biden. Great timing. This is the REAL beginning of the Dems taking Bernie out of play - NO NOMINATION, AGAIN!" Buttigieg previously had said Sanders was too liberal to be elected.

    Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the Democratic presidential race, two aides confirmed to NBC News on Sunday, ending a campaign that enjoyed a meteoric rise and outshone more experienced competitors but ultimately fell short after being dogged by a lack of minority support. The former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was supposed to travel to Texas but will instead return to Indiana, where he planned to make an announcement later Sunday night. It isn't clear who Buttigieg's supporters will now back or whether he will endorse one of the remaining candidates. Representatives of both the Buttigieg and Biden campaigns...

    Somebody made a deal. Was it the DNC? Mike Bloomberg? Perhaps even Joe Biden? Pete Buttigieg, the young Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who won the Iowa Caucus and performed better than expected in the New Hampshire primary and Nevada caucus (and arguably the South Carolina primary where he came in fourth), has inexplicably dropped out of the race two days before Super Tuesday. Like I said, somebody made a deal. Timing of the Buttigieg drop out is more than a little unusual. Maybe he secured some sort of deal … a “quid pro quo,” we might say. — Josh...

    Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the 2020 presidential primary race, a senior campaign aide told CNBC. He is flying to South Bend, Indiana to make the announcement, where he served as mayor for two terms. The Indiana Democrat waged an unlikely campaign that saw a little-known mayor overpower governors and U.S. senators in the race for the party nomination. Along the way, Buttigieg assembled a substantial war chest and a vast national operation. A two-term mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg was the first openly gay major presidential contender. He scored a narrow delegate edge over Sen. Bernie Sanders...

    Plains, Georgia - Former President Jimmy Carter suggested Pete Buttigieg's campaign is searching for answers after a disappointing fourth-place finish in Saturday's South Carolina primary, the first test of candidates' support in a state with predominantly African-American voters. Buttigieg and his husband Chasten paid a visit to Carter and former first lady Rosalynn Carter on Sunday morning, joining them for breakfast here in Georgia, which holds its Democratic primary on March 24. Carter told reporters at Buffalo Cafe in Plains that he is fond of Buttigieg, mentioning their work on a Habitat for Humanity project in South Bend, Indiana, where...

    The head of Michael Bloomberg’s presidential campaign in North Carolina made a homophobic crack in front of a reporter while talking about Pete Buttigieg during a meeting with local preachers. The staffer, James Mitchell, started naming Bloomberg’s rivals: “You have Biden, Sanders, Warren, Butti-Jay,” he said, according to a story written by veteran political reporter Ben Jacobs, which was posted in Mitchell, then gestured toward a minister, Dwayne Walker, and added: “Pastor, you got me saying what you were saying — Butti-Jay,” to laughter in the room. Mitchell added: “He said something different — I’m cleaning it up.” It...

    The results of the Iowa caucus remain unchanged even after a recount by the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP), which was requested by the two Democratic front-runners, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. “The recount process resulted in no change to National Delegate allocation,” the IDP said in a statement Thursday. Buttigieg remained the winner in the state, with a marginally higher delegate count than Sanders: Buttigieg had 562.954 and Sanders had 562.021.

    The Popes Refute the Monsters of Liberalism The Monsters of Liberty What kind of man would cite Holy Scripture to justify the brutal murder of unborn children even at the moment they are being born — even as their very heads are emerging from the birth canal?  What kind of man would drag a nine-year-old boy up on stage during a political rally to give that poor child advice before the whole world on how to “come out” as “gay”? Such a man would be a monster. And such a man is Pete Buttigieg: an apostate Catholic who pretends to have...

But watch this Time magazine video that shows him cutting his comments short and fleeing to his waiting limousine:

    Openly-gay Democrat presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg says he supports religious liberty – but, “not past the point where it is being used” by religious organizations to refuse to hire or serve LGBTQ people. “That freedom ends where you begin to invoke it to harm other people” who violate your organization’s religious doctrine by not hiring or serving them, Buttigieg told a CNN town hall on Monday.

    Pete Buttigieg is Barack Obama's Mini Me, or, as one Twitter user put it, "Fauxbama." Buttigieg's speech cadence, his shirt sleeves and even the knot of his tie are the same as President Obama's. And now a political Twitter account called "The Recount" has found that former Mayor Buttigieg's words are exactly the same as Obama's. For years Barack Obama reused and recycled Deval Patrick's old "no red America, no blue America, just the United States of America" speech written by their mutual political spirit animal David Axelrod. Obama, ahem, borrowed Elizabeth Warren's "you didn't build that" trope to denigrate initiatives by business owners...
