    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Friday that things named after President Thomas Jefferson should be renamed because that’s the “right thing to do.” Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., who became the rising star of the 2020 Democratic primary, echoed the far-left calls to rename buildings or events that carry the names of prominent U.S. figures on the grounds that they were owners of slaves. The mayor was asked during "The Hugh Hewitt Show" on radio whether the name of the annual Indiana Democratic dinner, named the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, should be renamed as both presidents were holders of...

    Pete Buttigieg said in an interview broadcast Tuesday that he and his husband Chasten want to be fathers one day – but 'maybe' he'll have to finish his historic run for president first. And he told a 'Today' show audience that he plans to keep emphasizing his religious faith in the face of hecklers who berate him for being a gay Christian. The 37-year-old Democrat takes the almighty seriously, and claimed that while God isn't likely a partisan, he would never be a Republican in the mold of Donald Trump. He said it's 'important that we stop seeing religion used...
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg's Unlikely, Untested, Unprecedented Presidential Campaign [TIME cover story]

    Time ^ | 5/2/19 | Charlotte Alter
    Their marriage is at once banal and extraordinary, infused with the exuberant contentment of two people who once thought they would always be alone. Chasten handles the dogs, the shopping, the cooking. Pete does the dishes, laundry and garbage. Chasten hates taking the bin out to the curb. Pete hates the way Chasten folds T-shirts. Chasten gets grumpy when they go too long without food, and Pete doesn’t get it. “You’re like, ‘Oh, here, I packed a bag of almonds and a thing of beef jerky,’” Chasten says. “I hate nuts, and he eats nuts all the time.” “High in...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg sat down with Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, sources tell The Hill. Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., who has been recently surging in the polls, requested the meeting, the sources say. He's the latest 2020 contender to meet with Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee, as she offers advice on what she learned from her race. Others who have met with her include Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.). “She has a lot to share and is happy to give advice to the 2020 candidates,” one Clinton ally said. The...

    RUSH: Mayor Pete took the train to Sylvia’s in Harlem yesterday. Was it yesterday? I guess it was yesterday. (interruption) It was yesterday. Now, the reason he did that was to meet with the Reverend Sharpton. Now, I have a different take on this. The Drive-By Media look at it as, “This is Mayor Pete. This is really smart on Mayor Pete’s part. He’s going up to Harlem and he’s talking to the Reverend Sharpton about black people, and he’s trying to get knowledge on the background of black people. He’s trying to learn about black people, even after firing...

    New York Times ^ | April 30, 2019 | Jeremy W. Peters and Shane Goldmacher
    Barely two months ago, when Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., was rating no higher than 1 or 2 percent in national polls, he had a well-worn punchline he used as he pitched himself in living rooms and conference rooms where many of the guests were, like him, young, male and gay. “I’m not asking for monogamy,” he would say. It was fine to give to the bigger names in the race like Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker or former Representative Beto O’Rourke. He asked only that they save some for his historic candidacy, too. Now, Mr....

But Kelly told The Daily Beast on Monday that he didn't write the post and that the allegations, which didn't include any specifics and are uncorroborated, were false.

    In case you're curious about the mysterious rise of South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg in the Democrat presidential polls recently, Politico has revealed it was not so much because of grassroots support but much more due to an incredibly intensive campaign for media attention.  The person behind this media hype campaign appears to be one Lis Smith, a well-connected and hyperactive Democrat operative with a lot of political experience.  So if you think that Buttigieg's recent poll surge is due to his political positions, you are probably wrong. Politico writer David Freedlander revealed on Monday how the media was willingly manipulated to...

    Pete Buttigieg and Cory Booker are turning down an invitation to an Iowa conservative Christian group’s summit, joining Beto O’Rourke, who had previously said he wouldn’t attend. Bob Vander Plaats, an influential social conservative leader in Iowa who runs the group The Family Leader, had told NBC News previously that he was inviting the Democratic candidates for president to have a discussion around faith and unity in July. The invitation, he said, comes as a number of Democrats this year have been speaking about their faith on the campaign trail. But Booker, the New Jersey senator, tweeted Monday that although...
