‘We Have a Responsibility,’ Buttigieg Tells Supporters

Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the Democratic presidential race on Sunday. As the first openly gay major presidential candidate, Mr. Buttigieg rose to the primary’s top tier but did poorly in South Carolina on Saturday.

So tonight, I am making the difficult decision to suspend my campaign for the presidency. I will no longer seek to be the 2020 democratic nominee for president. But I will do everything in my power to ensure that we have a new Democratic president come January. In a field in which more than two dozen Democratic candidates ran for president, senators and governors, billionaires, a former vice president, we achieved a top-four finish in each of the first four states to hold nominating contests and we made history, winning those Iowa caucuses. We have a responsibility to consider the effect of remaining in this race any further. Our goal has always been to help unify Americans to defeat Donald Trump, and to win the era for our values.
