  • Pete Buttigieg stands in as Mike Pence for Kamala Harris's debate practice

    The Hill ^ | 10/01/2020 | BY J. EDWARD MORENO
    Pete Buttigieg, a former Democratic presidential hopeful, has played the role of Vice President Pence in mock debates with Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), according to Bloomberg. The choice to cast Buttigieg reportedly came because of his familiarity with Pence, who was governor of Indiana when Buttigieg was mayor of South Bend. After virtually tying with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Iowa caucuses, Buttigieg dropped out of the Democratic primary days before Super Tuesday, promptly throwing his support behind now-Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Harris and Pence will debate on Oct. 7 in Salt Lake City, which...
  • Two different cases of PrEP failure despite high adherence underline that such events are rare, but should not be ignored

    Two reports of HIV infection occurring despite apparent adequate adherence to PrEP, confirmed by drug level testing, are the first reliably documented cases to be published in peer-reviewed journals since 2018. The most recent case was reported by Dr Matthew Spinelli in Clinical Infectious Diseases. It concerns a 44-year-old gay man in Texas and appears not to be due to poor adherence, but to infection with an HIV virus with an unusual combination of resistance mutations. Two characteristics of the case make it hard to argue against this being a genuine case of PrEP breakthrough. Firstly, samples of blood and...

    Former South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg said on Fox News Wednesday that President Donald Trump has a “dim view” of the intelligence of his own supporters.” Anchor Martha MacCallum said, “Do the American people sort of need to see that the former vice president can handle the very tough demanding schedule of what it takes to be the president of the United States?” Buttigieg said, “You know, the best way to see who can handle that demanding schedule is to see who can handle it on the campaign trail. I’m in my 30s. The presidential trail beat me up....

    President Trump must think the American people are suckers if he expects them to believe he didn’t insult fallen soldiers during his 2018 trip to France, former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg told “The Story” Friday. “I mean, look, the president today lied on Twitter about never calling John McCain a loser,” Buttigieg, a veteran of the U.S. Navy Reserve who served in Afghanistan, told host Jon Scott. “Now, he’s asking us to believe that, OK, he’s lying about that today, because we can check and see the footage, but he’s not lying about the other stuff? He must think...

    Democratic presidential nominee former Vice-President Joe Biden praised the NBA basketball players who refused to take the court in their playoff games after the latest police shooting of a black man in Kenosha Wisconsin this week. "This moment demands moral leadership," Biden said. "And these players answered by standing up, speaking out, and using their platform for good. The sacrifices they made foregoing their salaries and forfeiting their games touch us all in very profound ways. It's an example I wish our current president would have followed." Vice-presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif) seconded Biden's take and hailed the decision...

    Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” former South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, formerly a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, tied President Donald Trump to the civil unrest in Kenosha, WI and other places around the country. He argued there would be no reason for the situation to change or get better should Trump be re-elected in November.

The party’s progressive firebrand has been afforded the limited role while Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, will get to deliver live, virtual speeches at the coronavirus-revamped event, Business Insider reported Wednesday.

    The University of Notre Dame has hired former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg as a researcher and teacher for the 2020-2021 academic year, the university announced Thursday. As a faculty fellow in the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study, Buttigieg will work on two research projects: one that explores how to restore trust in political institutions and another that considers the forces shaping the 2020s. He joins a group of more than 30 faculty and student fellows who will conduct research on the nature of trust, the institute’s 2020-2021 research theme. Buttigieg will take part in weekly seminars and other...
  • 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...

    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

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...
