    WASHINGTON - (AP) - Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg will quarantine for 14 days after a member of his security detail tested positive Monday for the coronavirus. The agent had been “in close contact” with Buttigieg, including Monday morning prior to the agent’s positive result, the Transportation Department said in a statement. Buttigieg has since tested negative and has had no symptoms. “Secretary Buttigieg will take all necessary steps to ensure there is no spread, including quarantining for a period of 14 days, and will continue to follow all other CDC guidelines,” said Laura Schiller, the department’s chief of staff, referring...

    WASHINGTON — Pete Buttigieg won Senate approval Tuesday as transportation secretary, the first openly gay person to be confirmed to a Cabinet post. He’ll be tasked with advancing President Joe Biden’s ambitious agenda of rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure and fighting climate change. Buttigieg, a 39-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and Biden’s one-time rival during the Democratic presidential primaries, was approved on a 86-13 vote. “I’m honored and humbled by today’s vote in the Senate—and ready to get to work,” Buttigieg tweeted shortly after he was confirmed. Praised by Biden as bringing a “new voice” to the administration, Buttigieg...

    Incoming Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has suggested taxing Americans for the number of miles they drive, a policy he endorsed as a Democratic presidential candidate. The Biden Administration is actively searching for ways to fund its ambitious $1 trillion infrastructure plan. Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., acknowledged "privacy concerns" related to implementing a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) system but said it should be considered as a potential replacement for the gas tax.

  • Buttigieg Dismissively Defends Biden's Elimination of Keystone Pipeline Jobs

    On Day One of his presidency, President Joe Biden signed an executive order stopping the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, slashing thousands of jobs along with it, because he and his incoming administration deem it an environmental hazard. TC Energy Corp. has already let go 1,000 workers in both the U.S. and Canada. Pete Buttigieg, who ran against Biden in the 2020 Democratic primary, is now the president's Transportation Secretary nominee. He was grilled by the Senate on Thursday about Biden's job-killing signatures. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) shared his concern that President Biden just upended 1,200 good paying union...

    President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team appeared to delete an old campaign ad that criticized Pete Buttigieg for his lack of experience — after the former Indiana mayor was nominated to serve as transportation secretary, according to a report. The ad ran in February before the New Hampshire primary election and contrasted Biden’s long career as a senator and as vice president in the Obama administration with Buttigieg’s time as mayor of South Bend, Ind. — a city of 100,000, Fox News reported.

    President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday mangled his rollout of Pete Buttigieg as the “first” gay Cabinet nominee — using a female name for Buttigieg’s husband and omitting mention of President Trump having named the first gay Cabinet-level member. Biden noted his fondness for Buttigieg’s husband “Kirsten” during a speech in Wilmington, Del., as he formally named the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor as his nominee for transportation secretary. Biden also snubbed Ric Grenell, who Trump celebrated this year as the first gay Cabinet member when he worked three months as acting Director of National Intelligence.

    Leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement have come out against President-elect Joe Biden’s decision to nominate former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg for Secretary of Transportation, recalling his struggles with minority voters. Biden announced Tuesday that Buttigieg was his choice for the transportation post — a plum position for a candidate who dropped out of the presidential race before Super Tuesday and endorsed the former vice president.

    Buttigieg, who mounted a failed bid for the Democratic presidential primary, is set to be nominated as transportation secretary by the man who did win the primary and the general election, President-elect Joe Biden, several news organizations reported Tuesday. Buttigieg, 38, attracted attention during his 2020 bid for president with his combination of progressivism and pragmatism – his health care plan was called "Medicare for All Who Want It," a move toward a single payer plan without forcing people to give up their private insurance. His hyper-intellectualism contrasted with his "Mayor Pete'' accessibility. He kept his sexual orientation private until...

    Thursday, former South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg pushed back against President Donald Trump contesting election results amid allegations of voter fraud. Buttigieg called on Trump to have his administration provide information to former Vice President Joe Biden, who was named the winner of the 2020 presidential election by the media, and his transition team because “there’s no uncertainty that Joe Biden will put his hand on a Bible on January 20” to take the Presidential Oath of Office.

    It’s not often when you see a Democratic presidential donor actually concede on live television that America really doesn’t want anything to do with leftist politics. During the November 4 edition of CNBC’s Squawk Box, CNBC co-anchor Andrew Ross Sorkin questioned Starwood Capital Group Chairman and CEO Barry Sternlicht regarding exit polls allegedly showing that Americans favored leftist policies: “[A]re you surprised that some of the polls on the way out — when they asked Americans about things like, you know, a government-controlled healthcare — that a majority of Americans said they were in favor of things like that?” Sorkin...

    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 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?

    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...
