Pete Buttigieg Gets Support From Democratic Candidates After Suspending His Campaign

Pete Buttigieg‘s race for President is over.

The 38-year-old former Mayor officially made the announcement on Sunday night (March 1) in his hometown of South Bend, Indiana.

“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,” Pete said with husband Chasten Buttigieg by his side. “So tonight I am making the difficult decision to suspend my campaign for the presidency.”

“We sent a message to every kid out there wondering if whatever marks them out as different means they are somehow destined to be less than, to see that someone who once felt that exact same way can become a leading American presidential candidate with his husband at his side,” Pete said.

After making the announcement, the remaining Democratic candidates still in the running tweeted Pete, commending him on his resilient, and historic campaign.
