WASHINGTON D.C — While most Americans are drudging the Inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, the Democratic Party is actively on the hunt for a new leader who can help the progressives recapture both top offices as well as local elections.
With the announcement of openly Gay Indiana Mayor, “Peter Buttigieg“, throwing his name into the race, the Democratic party may have found their new leader. Buttigieg entered the race last Friday.
Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is ready to replace interim chairwoman Donna Brazile. Buttigieg did an interview with the New York Times and told them … “The Democratic Party needs a leader that can recapture some of the populist vote that lead ultimately to Trump’s victory in November.” said Buttigieg. “I think there needs to be a voice for communities like mine,” Buttigieg said. “And I don’t just mean communities in the Midwest, but communities where the decisions made in Washington actually affect people.” said Buttigieg.
Buttigieg who has served two terms as mayor of South Bend, he also comes with an impressive resume’ Harvard graduate, a Rhodes Scholar, and an openly gay Navy veteran.
“I can’t think of something more meaningful than organizing the opposition in the face of what I think will be a pretty monstrous presidency and challenging time out here in the states,” concluded Peter Buttigieg.
