I would have never  imagined that we would have an out  gay man running for President so it makes be very proud that Mayor Pete is on our team- and I do hope this movie has happy ending.

He's played it exactly right, making Chasten a big part of his campaign, which sort of preemptively short-circuits the whole idea of anyone trying to "out" him in any negative way. The way he took on Rush Limbaugh's attempted takedown was classic and shows he could probably stand up to the dirty tactics of He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named in the general election.

I agree and he will get my vote

I hope people vote for Mayor Pete based on his policy stances than his sexual orientation.

My fear is that there are still too many misguided people in those Midwestern battle ground states that will decide the election for him to win.

E.g.    the Dem candidate needs Obama type support from people-of-color and sadly that community has more anti-gay people than the white community.      

Look at how poorly he does in the polls with potential black voters;    I don't think this has to do with his policy stances or his performance as major but more so because the black community is the most religious in the USA (based on consistent church attendance),   and the vast majority of black churches are still anti-gay.

How quick you are to jump on that. African Americans dislike him because his police were in trouble for shooting unarmed black men (somehow if he were a Republican mayor I bet you would agree with them). Warren is easily the best of the Dem candidates now hands down even if she has said and done some very stupid things before (Native american scandal, Bernie is a sexist misogynist).

Reality Check if Mayor Pete was straight he would probably be on top of the polls- even though to be fair his homosexuality is barely mentioned- and the Democrats of course would never attack him on that level.   There are some  gays who seem to think Mayor Pete is not gay enough- because you know he is husband is not a transgender person of color- but these people need a reality check.   I'm not sure why Mayor Peter is not attracting black voters  but hey I fail to see the appeal of Comrade Bernie.

I thought this satirical take on the fight between Mayor Pete and Bloomberg was pretty funny. :lol:

Bloomberg buys El Paso Times, fires editorial staff following Buttigieg endorsement

bloombergelpaso.jpg?w=942

EL PASO, TX – Bloomberg LP CEO Mike Bloomberg has acquired the El Paso Times from American mass-media holding company Gannet Co, and laid off its entire editorial staff after the daily newspaper endorsed former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg to be the democratic nominee for president.

“I was looking to expand my media holdings, and I thought local newspapers would be the way to go,” explained Bloomberg, adding “we’re excited to bring our trusted brand of outstanding news reporting to every community in America.”

The former El Paso Times will now be known as Bloomberg El Paso, and be headed by an editorial staff hand-selected by Bloomberg.

“I came into the office this morning, everything was routine,” said former El Paso Times editor Zahira Torres. “Just before 5pm, two men in suits entered the office and explained that the newspaper had been bought out and my colleges and I were immediately escorted from our offices and told we wouldn’t be returning to work tomorrow. It was all so sudden.”

A representative for Bloomberg LP told BeetPress that the company was also working to acquire the Eureka Times-Standard, which endorsed Vermont senator Bernie Sanders on Sunday.

“My goal for the next couple of months is for our newly created division Bloomberg Local to acquire up to 100 local newspapers throughout the country,” said Bloomberg. “It will be good for our company, and it will be great for the communities we serve.”

As of press time, BeetPress has learned that Bloomberg El Paso has retracted its endorsement of Buttigieg and formally endorsed Mike Bloomberg to be the democratic nominee for president.

I cannot support Mayor Pete because he worked for McKinsey & Company, a firm that I've had some experience with and which I revile.  What's worse, he sounds like he worked for McKinsey!

Looks like you don't have to worry.  Several media outlets have reported he's dropping out.
