The following article, BREAKING: Democrat Pete Buttigieg Drops Out of 2020 Presidential Race (Details), was first published on Flag And Cross.
And then there was just Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and Michael Bloomberg. I think. I don’t know. Who cares? Just a bunch of people who aren’t terribly fond of their country.
One day after far-left billionaire activist Tom Steyer dropped from the 2020 presidential race, Pete Buttigieg followed in his footsteps. Talking about a falling star.
Here’s the scoop, via Fox News:
Pete Buttigieg told supporters he’s ending his presidential campaign on Sunday, a campaign source confirmed to Fox News, in an abrupt and surprising pullout that further narrows the field of Democrats less than a month after he declared victory in the contested Iowa caucuses.
Buttigieg had been scheduled to headline a rally in Dallas, Texas on Sunday night. The charter plane has been rerouted to South Bend, Ind., where Buttigieg will announce that he is dropping out, Fox News has learned.
Buttigieg’s withdrawal comes just days before 14 states are set to head to the polls on Super Tuesday, where one-third of all delegates for the Democratic nomination will be at stake. His exit will likely harm frontrunner Bernie Sanders by providing a coalescing boost to more moderate candidates, as Buttigieg had gone on the offensive against Sanders and sought to appeal to the centrist base of the Democratic Party.
Buttigieg dropping out is harmful to Sanders in 2 ways. Per the economist, relatively few Buttigieg voters were also considering Bernie. But, his voters will now help Biden, Warren and Bloomberg to hit 15% in more states and districts.https://t.co/4JApGxCCKx

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) already had a milkshake tossed at him. That was bad.
Not long after, a Buttigieg staffer hoped Gaetz was assaulted once more.
This time, though, not with dairy.
Hey @PeteButtigieg – this is a reply from a member of your campaign inciting (rather gross) violence against me after someone previously threw a drink on me.
Is this what your campaign stands for? pic.twitter.com/7u1wMaQDtj

Here’s Gaetz discussing the incident:
I had a circumstance just a few weeks ago where someone threw a drink at me leaving a town hall meeting. I am going to press charges. It’s really important to send a message that we as conservatives have a right to our views — just like anybody else. We're not backing down. pic.twitter.com/gCk05s9dWK

It doesn’t matter to Democrats that millions of Americans would be negatively impacted by a minimum wage hike.
What matters is that it sounds good and the uninformed believe what they’re saying.
Check out Pete, who is openly gay, lecturing Christians about being against raising the minimum…
