Meet Pete Buttigieg aka Mayor Pete aka the first Gay Candidate for President: VIDEOS
In an ever-growing field of Democratic contenders running for President in 2020, standing out and breaking away from the pack is getting more and more challenging. This week that hasn’t been a problem for candidate, Pete Buttigieg whose continual challenge is still getting his name pronounced correctly.
All together now, BOOT-edge-edge.
Openly gay, Mayor Pete jumped to a double digit percentage in primary poling this week and to third place behind Joe Biden (who hasn’t officially announced) and Bernie Sanders. Much of his early notoriety has been from his stellar interview performances. He’s not only come across as informed, passionate, and genuine, but quick witted with brilliant lines like calling the Trump Administration “a porn star Presidency” and this reaction when asked if Mike Pence would be better than Trump?” #priceless
He’s had an incredible week in the media with this fabulous profile on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.”
Mayor Pete also landed the prime opening interview on “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
If that wasn’t enough, Mayor Pete’s husband, junior high school teacher, Chasten is winning the “2020 Spouse Primary” according to Politico.com. The newlyweds were “Just Married’ last June, and are surprisingly traditional not to mention totally adorable.
