Pete Buttigieg ended his campaign for President Sunday night…
Buttigieg officially made the announcement during a Sunday event in South Bend, where the former mayor said:
“today is a moment of truth… the truth is the path has narrowed to a close, for our candidacy, if not for our cause. So we must recognize that at this point in the race the best way to keep faith with those goals and ideals is to step aside and help bring our party and our country together, So tonight, I am making the difficult decision to suspend my campaign for the presidency. We have a responsibility to concede the effect of remaining in this race any further. Our goal has always been to help unify Americans to defeat Donald Drumpf and to win the era for our values.”
Based on CNN report, Pete Buttigieg made the decision on Sunday, after he struggled to compete in South Carolina’s primary and had little path toward success on Super Tuesday.
Buttigieg was scheduled to fly from Selma, Alabama, to Dallas on Sunday, but during the flight he informed reporters that he would be flying back to South Bend, his hometown, to make an announcement on the future of his campaign.
After initial success in Iowa and New Hampshire, Pete Buttigieg’s campaign struggled to win over voters of color, a key base to the Democratic Party, which hurt his performance in Nevada and South Carolina, two states where Buttigieg finished significantly behind the race’s frontrunners.
Pete’s run was historic because he is the first openly gay man to launch a competitive campaign for president, and he broke barriers by becoming the first gay candidate to earn primary delegates for a major party’s presidential nomination.
