The New York Times reported on March 1, 2020 that Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was calling it quits, writing on Twitter, “Breaking News: Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the 2020 race. He rose to the top tier of the Democratic presidential field but struggled to win broad support.” CNN’s Jake Tapper tweeted, “Campaign aide tells me Pete Buttigieg is suspending his campaign this evening.” The Washington Post reported the same, tweeting, “Breaking news: Pete Buttigieg, 38-year-old former South Bend, Ind., mayor, ends presidential bid.”
Buttigieg’s candidacy was history-making, although it won’t go the distance if the reports are true. He was the first openly gay presidential candidate in the nation’s history.
