    SOUTH BEND, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Former South Bend mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has been named a 2020-2021 faculty fellow at the University of Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study. Buttigieg joins a group of more than 30 faculty and student fellows who will be conducting research on the nature of trust, the institute’s 2020-2021 research theme. The university says 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. As an NDIAS faculty fellow, Notre Dame says Buttigieg...

    The Democratic Party’s veepstakes may have narrowed down to two top contenders. Out of all the potential running mates thought to be on Joe Biden’s shortlist, only two — California Sen. Kamala Harris and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren — spoke at the Texas Democratic Party’s state convention, which ended Saturday. “These things don’t happen by accident,” Democratic strategist Brad Bannon told The Post. “I think those two are getting an audition in Texas.”
  • VIDEO: When Will Jacobin Left Demand Biden Removal from Democrat Ticket?

    VIDEO Just as the Jacobins of the French Revolution ended up eating their own including Danton and Robespierre, we are now seeing the Jacobin Left in America doing the same. The latest example was when the the squishy liberal mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, was just denounced and booed because he would not agree to defunding the police department which, of course, would mean its abolition. So the question has to be asked, how long before the Jacobin Left demand the removal of the author of the 1994 crime bill, Joe Biden, from the Democrat ticket? If Frey is...

    “Though the change is small, it could be an indication that many believe Warren would not positively contribute to winning swing voters,” said Alex Donohue, analysts for U.S. Bookies. “It’s also worth noting that choosing other top candidates, such as [Senators] Kamala Harris or Amy Klobuchar, would not have this negative effect on Biden’s chances, and his odds would remain 13/10.”
  • Warren endorses Biden, following Sanders in closing ranks behind presumptive nominee

    Fox News ^ | April 14 2020 | Paul Steinhauser
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday endorsed Joe Biden for president, more than a month after ending her own presidential bid. "In this moment of crisis, it’s more important than ever that the next president restores Americans’ faith in good, effective government—and I’ve seen Joe Biden help our nation rebuild. Today, I’m proud to endorse," she tweeted, along with a video. The Massachusetts senator had withheld an endorsement ever since ending her campaign in early March, even as the race narrowed to essentially a contest between Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders. But with Sanders dropping out last week, Biden became the...
  • The 11 most logical picks for Joe Biden’s vice president, ranked (no men required)

    04/10/2020 2:14:02 PM PDT · by Libloather · 67 replies
    Joe Biden is now the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, after Bernie Sanders suspended his campaign Wednesday morning. The next big question in the race - beyond when and how Biden will be formally nominated amid a pandemic, of course - is who is going to fill out the ticket as Biden’s vice presidential running mate. The pick carries unusual importance, especially given Biden, who will turn 78 shortly after Election Day, would be the oldest president ever elected by far. We already know one thing about that pick: It will be a woman, as Biden pledged in a recent...
  • Joe Biden’s campaign seeks new fundraising advisors to prepare for the battle against Trump

    CNBC ^ | 3/30/20 | Brian Schwartz
    Joe Biden’s campaign is looking to expand its fundraising operation as it prepares to take on President Donald Trump in the general election. Officials within Biden’s organization have discussed bringing in a new group of regional fundraising advisors, including former aides to Sen. Kamala Harris’ and Pete Buttigieg’s campaigns, who could help them expand their donor network, according to people familiar with the matter. These people declined to be named because the talks were private. Biden had a strong March, raising more than $30 million in online donations, as the coronavirus has pushed his campaign into a fully online platform,...

    There may be plenty of second chances in life, but there are very few when it comes to voting — a bitter pill to swallow for those Californians who voted for any of the presidential candidates who dropped out before Tuesday’s statewide election. The sudden exit from the race Sunday by Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Ind., sparked some brief interest on social media about the rules governing a possible revote. No doubt similar questions were raised by those who cast early absentee ballots for Tom Steyer, the billionaire climate change activist who left the race Saturday. The...

    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...

    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...

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — When residents of this city’s impoverished West Side reflect on Pete Buttigieg’s two terms as mayor, a few things come to mind: A spike in violent crime, development that largely ignored the African American community and how their only well-lit street is the one that leads to Notre Dame University. So how, they wonder, can Buttigieg possibly be trusted to run the country? “If he’s the next president, I fear for our country. He couldn’t run our city. How can he run the United States?” said Michelle Burger, 42, a stay-at-home mom who lives in South...

    The View‘s Meghan McCain recently sought a clearer answer from Mayor Pete Buttigieg about his position on late-term abortion. She asked him where he drew the line and whether his position included a baby actually being born: Buttigieg: We live in a country where it is extremely important that no one person should have to be subject to some other person’s interpretation of their own religion.” I wondered whether Mayor Pete thought religious freedom equally applied to say, Jack Phillips’ right not to be forced to create a custom cake for a gay wedding. Sure enough I found a piece...

    ... Every one of the party’s presidential candidates has a robust climate action agenda. It is a rare area in this primary where candidates are marching mostly to the same beat. They almost universally support a Green New Deal. They all vow to immediately reenlist the U.S. in the Paris accord to fight global warming. The differences lie in how far, how fast and how much to spend. We break down where they stand and what climate policy would look like under the vision offered by each of the Democratic hopefuls.

    Democratic presidential candidate former South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg said at a town hall in Reno, NV if President Donald Trump could “do chores” if he refused to leave the White House after losing his reelection bid. A voter asked Buttigieg what he would do if Trump said, “No, this is all a hoax,” and refusing to concede. Buttigieg said, “I mean, if he won’t leave, I guess if he’s willing to do chores, I guess we could work something out.” He continued, “I think we want to set a goal of winning big enough that this election is...

    Over the past year, conservatism has changed. At least, the way conservative intellectuals and some politicians talk has changed. Many now speak of orienting our society toward the common good, and about using government power to pursue that good. But has anything really changed within the Republican party? Politics and policy often run a course independent of philosophical debate. Are policymakers ready to go on offense and commit to a different strategy for combatting transgender ideology and the gay agenda? The answer seems to be yes.Last month, NBC News announced: “Dozens of anti-LGBTQ state bills already proposed in 2020, advocates...

    RUSH: This Mayor Pete stuff. What do you think the main reason the Drive-Bys went batty over this? I didn’t lecture Mayor Pete on anything. I didn’t say anything anti-gay. I didn’t even offer an opinion of my own. I was asking people to analyze — asking people to imagine how the Democrat power base was looking at their options after the Hawkeye Cauci and New the Hampshire primary. I’ll replay the bite for you. It takes about two minutes to go through, but at no point was there a lecture of Mayor Pete on family values or anything else....
