Pete Buttigieg 2020 DNC Convention Speech
Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg spoke at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, beginning his speech by raising the memory of Joe Biden's son Beau, who died of brain cancer after a life of service in both military and politics. Buttigieg also spoke about how change can come with "political courage" by highlighting the fact that he is now married to the man he loves thanks to Barack Obama and Joe Biden. He also implored the American people to bring civility back to everyday life and said that Joe Biden would work to heal the deep divides throughout this nation.
10th Democratic Debate
The 10th Democratic Debate will be held at the Gaillard Center in Charleston, South Carolina. CBS News is hosting the debate along with the Congressional Black Caucus Institute. It is being held days after the Nevada caucuses and days before the South Carolina Democratic primary.
9th Democratic Debate
The 9th Democratic Debate was held at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. NBC News and MSNBC hosted the debate along with The Nevada Independent. It was the smallest debate stage in the 2020 election cycle and the first debate former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg participated in. His Democratic rivals wasted no time harshly criticizing his record on a number of issues and questioning his motives for entering the race. Bloomberg appeared caught off guard at some moments, but forcefully pushed back at others. Another memorable moment is when Sen. Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg had an impassioned debate over courting minority voters.
8th Democratic Debate
The 8th Democratic debate co-hosted by ABC and television station WMUR was held at St Anselm College, outside of Manchester, NH. The candidates surprisingly struck a less hostile tone than prior debates and there were even some moments of levity when Bernie Sanders was asked about a criticism by Hillary Clinton about his likability in the Senate, hoping to get some moments of disagreement, but instead Joe Biden talked about his admiration for Sanders and gave him a hug. Not all moments were light though, with multiple candidates questioning Pete Buttigieg about his inability to break through with non-white voters and Biden sharply criticizing Sanders over gun control.
Pete Buttigieg Morning Joe Interview
Pete Buttigieg spoke with spoke with the cast of Morning Joe the morning after the 7th Democratic debate to discuss how he felt the evening went, among other topics. Buttigieg insisted that he firmly believes he can win the Democratic nomination and beat Donald Trump in the general election. He also discussed Donald Trump's pending impeachment trial in the Senate and suggested that the President is both a "symptom and a cause" of many problems in the United States.
