Pete Buttigieg giving a speech at the Victory fund, and keeping history alive.

Buttigieg is a young mayor from South Bend and a former member of the Navy Reserve. He began to draw national notice after writing an essay that counseled Democrats on how to recover from their defeats in the 2016 elections.

His national polling average is 8%, and his news coverage ranking is #5.

Major Policy Points:

  • Climate change
  • Support labor and economic opportunity
  • Universal background checks
  • Single-payer healthcare system

He shot up amongst the polls earlier last month and is aiming to be the first member of the LGBTQ community to be president.

I am running to be the president who will pick up the rubble, pick up the pieces of our divided nation, and lead us to real action to do right by Americans who have waited far too long”

— Pete Buttigieg
