Pete Tweet


Vietnam War Veterans Day - A message from Pete Buttigieg



Mayor Pete has more chief executive experience than the mayors of Phoenix and San Antonio.

It's not just about a city's population.

South Bend - Strong Mayor system

Phoenix - Council/Manager system

San Antonio - Council/Manager system

Strong mayor: The city council serves as the city's primary legislative body, and the mayor serves as the city's chief executive.

Council-manager: An elected city council—which includes the mayor and serves as the city's primary legislative body—appoints a chief executive called a city manager to oversee day-to-day municipal operations and to implement the council's policy and legislative initiatives.

Is Pete Buttigieg a Political Genius? The New Republic By ALEX SHEPHARD March 29, 2019


"But Buttigieg has an uncanny sense of public opinion—or he’s done his research."

"This remains Buttigieg’s message through today: that a midwestern Democrat attuned to struggling voters in “flyover” country is best positioned to lead the party post-Trump. It is Buttigieg’s luck that he happens to be the only such Democrat in the race right now—but his guile got him here."

Wow! Trump says Mueller probe was an 'attempted takeover of our government'

President Donald Trump railed against special counsel Robert Mueller's now-completed investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election on Wednesday, calling it an "attempted takeover of our government."

"We can never allow this treasonous, these treasonous acts to happen to another President," Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity, in his first TV interview since Attorney General William Barr summarized the principal findings of Mueller's report in a memo to Congress on Sunday.


Booker's on a CNN town hall tonight. Hope he doesn't yell a lot.
