Pete Buttigieg Ends Presidential Campaign


Earlier this evening, former Mayor Pete Buttigieg ended his campaign for president of the United States.

The conclusion of Buttigieg’s candidacy for the White House occurred after his failure to secure wins in Nevada, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. Buttigieg did manage to scrape out a win, albeit it a contested one, in the Iowa caucus.

Despite the upcoming votes that will take place this Super Tuesday, the now-former 2020 Democrat decided to see his way out of the 2020 presidential election.

A Closer Look at Buttigieg’s Concession Speech

The former mayor gathered with supporters in South Bend, Indiana this evening. After an introduction from his husband Chasten, Buttigieg announced that he will no longer seek to become the next president of the United States. However, the former candidate did assure that he’ll “do everything in [his] power” to ensure that Trump doesn’t win a second term in office.

Despite ending his campaign, the now-ex 2020 Democrat attempted to make his supporters feel hopeful. Buttigieg explained that the desire to send a positive message to children largely fueled his decision to run for office.
