Pete Buttigieg Is Out Of the Presidential Race

Well, I just lost a bet, namely that the next candidate to fall would be Amy Klobuchar. Pete Buttigieg just threw in the towel, instead. New York Times: SELMA, Ala. — Pete Buttigieg, the former small-city Indiana mayor and first openly gay major presidential candidate, has decided to quit the Democratic race, a person briefed on Mr. Buttigieg’s plans said on Sunday, following a crushing loss in the South Carolina primary where his poor performance with black Democrats signaled an inability to build a broad coalition of voters. Mr. Buttigieg, 38, narrowly won the Iowa caucuses early last month and came in a strong second place in the New Hampshire primary, exciting liberal white Democrats with his cool, hyper-articulate manner. But he never broadened his breadth of support in a party with a nonwhite base, and one that has veered leftward since 2018. He came in a distant third in the Nevada caucuses, which drew strong numbers of Latino voters, and then fourth place in South Carolina, where black voters made up a majority of the Democratic electorate. He won just 3 percent of them, according to exit polls. I like Buttigieg a lot. His “hyper-articulate” ways play out just fine in my book. The man is intelligent and knowledgeable and a breath of fresh air in more ways than one. What I always saw as his shortcomings were 1. Lack of POC support, which it turns out has been what has ended his campaign, 2. Only experience as a small town mayor. With most people this would have been a lot more of a handicap than it was to Buttigieg. He always displayed a grasp of issues way above his actual experience in politics, and 3. Being gay. Buttigieg handled that aspect of his campaign with aplomb and I think everybody will agree, a lot of class. I hope we haven’t seen the last of Buttigieg in national politics. He brought a lot to the table and I would like to see what he could do in a national post as a cabinet appointee, or some such. Is it possible he might consider the VP post for whomever does get the nomination?
