    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...

    This is the kind of situation that makes campaign managers want to hide. It was Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who was speaking to a normally supportive crowd: workers striking for higher wages. But watch this Time magazine video that shows him cutting his comments short and fleeing to his waiting limousine:

    Lone Tree boy, 9, asks Pete Buttigieg how he can tell the world he is gay too by: Joe St. George DENVER (KDVR) — Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg rallied more than 4,000 supporters at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Aurora Saturday night. While Buttigieg landed familiar attacks on Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg, it was a question asked by a 9-year-old Lone Tree boy that stole the show. Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold read the question of 9 year old Zachary Ro: “Would you help me tell the world I am gay too?” “It won’t always be easy but...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg slammed President Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh at a CNN town hall Tuesday night. Last week, Limbaugh came under fire for making homophobic comments about Buttigieg and his marriage, something he has said he won’t apologize for, according to Limbaugh, because Trump told him not to. But between Limbaugh’s comments and Trump telling the conservative radio host not to apologize, Trump said he’d vote for a gay presidential candidate, and Buttigieg isn’t buying the contradictory stories. Asked if he’d take Trump at his word about voting for a gay candidate, Buttigieg responded, “Well, not if...

    Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg's campaign was mocked Friday for editing a clip from a CNN town hall that included inserting fake applause after a remark made by the 38-year-old presidential candidate. "To me, that is not just a concern for our generation, it's a concern that calls on us to build an alliance among generations to try to make sure that the future really is better than the past," Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., said in answering a question from an audience member in New Hampshire. In the live CNN event on Thursday night, Buttigieg's answer did...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Democratic presidential hopeful and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg's support has surged in New Hampshire ahead of the state's primary, according to a new WBZ/Boston Globe/Suffolk University daily tracking poll released on Thursday night. Buttigieg's support shot up four points to 23 percent in the state over the past 24 hours, according to the survey. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) still leads with 24 percent support, but the latest results put the two candidates closer in a virtual tie. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) came in with 13 percent support in the poll, and former Vice President...

    This is the shocking moment an Iowa caucus member demands to change her vote after she realizes Pete Buttigieg is gay and married to a man. Former South Bend mayor Buttigieg declared himself victor of the Iowa caucus just after 11pm Central time on Monday, even though there are no official results. But as this clip shows one unidentified woman tried to get her vote back after hearing the news he is married to his partner of five years, Chasten. In the footage she asks Buttigieg precinct captain, Nikki van den Heever: 'Are you saying that he has the same-sex...

    South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg declared himself the winner in Iowa after technical glitches and snafus prevented the state party from announcing any caucus results Monday night. Buttigieg, who was hoping to get a boost out of the nation's first caucus state to drive past more seasoned rivals, went beyond any of the other Democratic presidential contenders his his caucus-night speech. 'We don't know all of the results. But we do know that by the time it's all said and done, Iowa: you have shocked the nation. Because by all indications we are going on to New Hampshire victorious,' Buttigieg...

    Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg refused to welcome pro-life Democrats into his party Sunday during a Fox News town hall meeting. Though most Americans do not share his belief that abortions should be legal for any reason up to birth, the South Bend, Indiana mayor would not compromise – even as he tries to court swing voters, according to CNN. Fox News Wilmington reports pro-life Democrat Kristen Day asked Buttigieg if he would welcome her and millions of other pro-life Democrats by adding “big tent” language to the party platform. “So, do you want the support of pro-life Democrats, pro-life...

    ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Saturday the Oval Office requires a wartime veteran, a niche he occupies exclusively among top-tier candidates in his party’s race for the 2020 nomination. During an interview on Iowa PBS in suburban Des Moines, Buttigieg was asked if there’s value in a president who had faced hostile fire. Buttigieg, a Naval intelligence officer in Afghanistan in 2014, noted he had been present for rocket attacks while stationed at Bagram Airfield, and later faced potential danger as an armed driver in Kabul. Another presidential candidate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, served...

    Pete Buttigieg does not want pro-life Christians to “impose” their religious beliefs on others when it comes to protecting the unborn, but he would push his own pro-abortion beliefs on Americans if elected president. The pro-abortion Democrat and South Bend, Indiana mayor recently spoke to an Orange City, Iowa crowd about why he, a self-described Christian, supports abortion on demand, according to the Washington Examiner. Buttigieg reportedly touted his faith while talking about welcoming immigrants and refugees, expanding food stamps, and helping the poor, referring to various scripture references to support his position. When asked about abortion, however, he defended...

    Earlier this year, South Bend, IN, Mayor and presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg quoted the Bible in an attempt to speak to the question of abortion: “There [are] a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently.” If we applied the Bible in the way Mayor Pete suggests, abortion would be justified up until birth, a position now firmly embedded and championed across the Democratic Party. One of the ways Mayor Pete has distinguished his candidacy from all of the other Democratic hopefuls for...

    On Veterans Day, I had the privilege of welcoming Pete Buttigieg back to Rochester to unveil his policy to honor veterans and their families. In July, Pete first visited Rochester and I had the opportunity to lead him on a downtown walking tour. I was struck by our many similarities. We had both grown up in Indiana, were both the first openly gay men to be elected to our offices, and had both served overseas. So on Veterans Day, as we honored our fellow service members, I knew Pete felt the same complicated emotions many of us have on that...

    The idea of 2020 hopefuls Joe Biden or Pete Buttigieg facing off against President Trump next November would be a tragedy as the Democratic party continues to forge ahead without a true frontrunner, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said during a Thursday interview with The Intercept’s “Deconstructed” podcast. Omar was asked about the field of 2020 candidates and whether she preferred Biden or Buttigieg. She answered, “None,” before characterizing their hypothetical nominations as “tragic.” Host Mehdi Hasan asked.“But if you had to pick one? If one of them is the candidate for your party, who would you rather it be?” Omar...

    As poor as CNN’s ratings are in the United States, a rational person would conclude that, at some point, the executives who run the place would figure out what they’re doing wrong and fix it so that they could attract more viewers. But CNN isn’t run by rational people. In fact, we believe everyone who works there is certifiably out of their minds. They’d have to be in order to come up with some of the dumbest, tone-deaf, inappropriate, uninteresting, and pointless BS they put on the air. Like holding a “town hall” meeting with a gay man, hosted by...

To encourage someone to commit a crime and say it will be ok because you will pardon them is that really what this has come to? Is that how naked the criminal behavior of this presidency has become?”

    The question was about climate change. The answer soon turned to the Bible. And Pete Buttigieg knew the verses. “There’s a lot about the stewardship of creation that is in Scripture that I don’t see being honored by the administration right now, not to mention the stuff about loving your neighbor and taking care of the least among us and feeding the poor,” the South Bend, Indiana, mayor said. The crowd of about 250 at a Mississippi River park in southeastern Iowa this month erupted with cheers. Republicans for a half century have built a loyal following among white evangelical...
