Buttigieg Thinking Of Backing Biden With Endorsement After Speaking With Obama

Published

on

Folks were a little stunned after Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, decided to suspend his presidential campaign, but it seems he’s already considering throwing his support behind former Vice President Joe Biden after having a conversation with former President Barack Obama.

As it turns out, the decision to drop from the race was also the result of this phone conversation.

Check out the details from the Washington Examiner:

The source said Obama did not encourage Buttigieg to endorse any specific candidate but told the former mayor he holds significant influence and should take that into account before throwing his support behind somebody.

During the conversation with Biden, the former vice president asked Buttigieg to support his campaign, and the former mayor said he would consider it. Buttigieg told aides he would sleep on it.

Buttigieg, who was the first openly gay major presidential candidate, appeared to take swipes at Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist, during his speech Sunday night as he announced the end of his campaign.

“We need leadership to heal a divided nation, not drive us further apart,” he said. “We need a broad-based agenda that can truly deliver for the American people, not one that gets lost in ideology.”

Buttigieg managed to hold the delegate lead through the first two states that held Democratic primaries, but lost a lot of momentum afterward, failing to gain the interest of folks outside the college-educated white voter base.

Buttigieg did dismal in the South Carolina primary Saturday evening, only nabbing eight percent of the vote and no delegates.

Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders is in the top spot with 58 delegates heading into the Super Tuesday. Currently, Biden has 50 delegates, which puts him in second place.

There’s a whole heck of a lot to unpack regarding the death of Minnesota man George Floyd and former police officer Derek Chauvin. Let’s just get right to the latest news. From Daily Wire: On Friday, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner issued a report saying a preliminary autopsy showed no evidence that George Floyd died of strangulation and traumatic asphyxia. Floyd’s arrest was captured on video and went viral earlier this week. During the incident, at least one officer is seen kneeling on the 46-year-old’s neck while Floyd repeatedly tells him he can’t breath. Floyd died soon following the arrest.

Violent rioters reportedly stormed a police precinct in New York City on Friday and lit law enforcement vehicles on fire.

Not cool, Lori.

When Republicans in office disagreed with Barack Obama, at least the vast majority did so in a professional manner. The same cannot be said about Democrats in the era of Trump. Enter the far-left mayor of Chicago, via Fox News: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted President Trump and invoked an expletive Friday in response to his tweet after three days of protests in Minneapolis, Minn., when he called the protesters “THUGS” and tweeted that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Lightfoot said, “Donald Trump’s comment last night was profoundly dangerous. And we must stand firm in solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who is the speaker.” She added, “He wants to show failures on the part of Democratic local leaders, to throw red meat to his base. His goal is to polarize, to destabilize local government and inflame racist urges. We can absolutely not let him prevail. And I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It’s two words. It begins with F and it ends with U.” Here’s a screenshot of Trump’s tweets: And here’s what Twitter decided to do with those tweets: A Lightfoot tweet: https://twitter.com/chicagosmayor/status/1244762897743351808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1244762897743351808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fchicago.suntimes.com%2Fcity-hall%2F2020%2F4%2F6%2F21211314%2Fgetting-roots-done-not-essential-getting-hair-cut-mayor-lightfoot VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah7xQHo9WOQ
