1/ A 🧵 on the #MayorPeteDoc/#MayorPeteMovie . #TeamPete #TeamPeteForever So last night, we sat down to watch the #MayorPeteDoc/#MayorPeteMovie
2/ I read lots of reviews in advance and expected to cry and find it cathartic on some level. I sniffled a couple of times but it was more of a delightful trip back to the reasons I boarded the Pete Train and never looked back.
3/ Some of the reviews I read in advance suggested that the documentary portrayed the struggles of Pete to "open up" or that it showed sides of Pete that most people didn't know existed. No on both counts for me.

#TeamPete! Do you like smart Midwesterners running for mayor? Do you like progressive problem solvers who believe in relational organizing? Do you like blue and yellow as a color scheme?

Then join me and support @GaviBegtrup for Mayor of Cincinnati! 1/

Ever wish more politicians were scientists?

Gavi's a PhD physicist who's worked on Capitol Hill as a AAAS Fellow and advisor to Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. No wonder @314action endorsed him!

🚨🚨Today we're publishing Energizing America: A Roadmap to Launch a National Energy Innovation Mission! You can download it for free from @ColumbiaUEnergy or order the paperback on Amazon (#1 clean energy new release!). 🧵👇🏽on what it's all about (1/10) bit.ly/energizingamer…
The US has a storied history of launching national innovation missions. They've delivered life-saving drugs, spawned the computer & internet revolutions, and put a man on the Moon. But we've never launched a serious, sustained innovation mission to combat climate change (2/10)
Time to change that—and seize this political window. A President Biden would make “the largest-ever investment in clean energy innovation" & bipartisan support in Congress is growing. (In rare show of resistance, Republican lawmakers raised funding by 25% over Trump years) (3/10)

Yes, there is no question that Pete has incredibly racist supporters. He also has extremely misogynistic supporters, and it became clear in Iowa that he even had homophobic supporters. What upsets #TeamPete, is that he's the one always called out for it. This is NOT unique
to him at all. Every single candidate has those same ignorant, hateful fools in their camp. Need proof? Follow Rose Twitter for 5 minutes. Warren's camp told indigenous people to get over her appropriating their ethnicity. Even Kamala, , & Andrew couldn't get a 100% rating
for the communities of color they represented. Let's not even get into Amy Klobuchar. Then there's Joe Biden who has white people defending his "well spoken" and "you're not black" comments. The issue is, Pete has become the Left's whipping boy for everything. So, some of

Here is my #TeamPeteForever thread. The first time I saw Pete in person was on May 2 in Minneapolis. This is when I connected with the Minnesota for Pete group, in particular, @Coffee4Pete pictured here.
In June and July I plunged into #TeamPete I read Shortest Way Home, got a decal and went to my first debate watch party! @MN4Pete
In July I traveled to South Bend and met @TheStefanSmith @JoyAnder25690 @GoodGuyPete2024 (Lety) @AJ_Indiana and @kyrsielaine

For action-oriented people, it’s difficult to accept that the most important thing we can do right now is stay home.

But #TeamPete doesn't sit idly by. So, if you can help, here are organizations focused on making sure our most vulnerable communities stay safe & healthy:
.@domesticworkers is providing $400 in emergency assistance for qualifying home care workers, nannies, and house cleaners who are experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This allows these workers to stay home and stay safe.
domesticworkers.org/coronavirus-ca…
.@FeedingAmerica is supporting local food banks to ensure nobody goes hungry during the pandemic.

Like so many other Democrats unifying every day around @JoeBiden’s character and leadership, I couldn’t be more excited to help elect him the next President and end the disaster of Donald Trump.
It’s an honor to work alongside all of @TeamJoe who spent the last year fighting their hardest, in Philly HQ and the states, even when they were counted out. That’s who you want to be in the fight with, always.
I’m grateful to be back on a team together with folks from across the party and so many other campaigns, friends old and new, and especially the #KHive, #TeamPete, #BetoToBiden, #TeamAmy, #TeamCory, #TeamMike and many more still every day.

Ten days ago when Pete announced he was dropping out, the campaign ended for many people, but for my team it meant executing a graceful close to the race. (THREAD 1/)
There’s an event to produce, a schedule to send out the next day (and the next), dozens of calls & briefings to pull together +surrogates and advance teams spread across the country who need to get home. (2/)
I’m proud of my team for putting their heads down and doing this work in the same manner they did throughout the campaign. I’ve had some time to reflect and want to share just how amazing they are as they look to their next opportunities. (3/)

I am going to close tonight with this: I am not a party loyalist. I am not a candidate loyalist. I am a values loyalist. The reason I was so deeply engaged in the Buttigieg campaign was because it not only was so closely aligned to my values it actually lived & breathed them

You may have heard me say that I believe that our problems aren't with our politicians and their staff compromising it is with US compromising. We allow our politicians to behave badly by continue to validate that behavior with our votes.
2/
We dismiss their behavior as "just politics" while at the same time being angry and frustrated at what is going on in Washington, what our country has become, and stew in the distrust we have for the very officials we elect.

The purpose of Nebraskans for Pete Buttigieg will go on as it began—an account to support @PeteButtigieg. We will continue to share relevant tweets, posts, articles, and events, not as an endorsement of any other candidates, but as a way of continuing to win the era...1/4
and build support for Pete. All members of #TeamPete are still welcome as we follow @PeteButtigieg into the future. As Pete said, “There is simply too much at stake to retreat to the sidelines now. Together we can beat this president and build the era that must come next.” 2/4
We will also be advancing the movement @PeteButtigieg built by continuing to organize at the grassroots level, participating as #TeamPete in service opportunities in our community, practicing the Rules of the Road, and gathering to celebrate #joy and #belonging at Pete-ups. 3/4

Tonight proved that #TeamPete had a grassroots infrastructure that was strong, organized, & ready.

The Marathon States program @PeteForAmerica didn’t just organize. We built community through belonging. Our volunteers built real connections.

Here’s what we accomplished:
We IDed, trained, and worked with 848 volunteer leaders in non-early states, some who are campaign veterans and many that were finding their voice in this space for the first time.
Those volunteer leaders led more than 50,000 active volunteers nationwide in weekly organizing activities not just in support of Pete, but in service to their community through monthly service projects with local organizations creating the world we want to live in.

I would say I'm suspending #ROTR, but Truth is one. I've been carrying around a lot of frustration for a long time that I no longer have a campaign to divert my energy toward, so allow me to vent, #TeamPete. I am FURIOUS at how dirty the media did Pete during this campaign. 1/20
The press couldn’t write a nice word about him without repeating the lie that he had no Black support-- and it was a lie. SC isn't the only place Black voters live, and he had 10% in Illinois MONTHS ago, for instance. But beat that drum enough, and it became self-fulfilling. 2/20
The press silenced the overwhelming majority of Black South Benders who supported him-- 75%, higher even than his white support in South Bend-- and it was so much more insidious than just ignoring them. They interviewed them and then SHELVED those interviews. 3/20

Congratulations #PeteButtigieg on a well ran historic campaign. If you caught my #SCprimary2020 Recap then you arent surprised by this development. Here is a rough cut since I'm hopping on a flight.
Full 🎥:
I can't think of a higher note for #PeteButtigieg to spend his last day on the campaign trail than commemorating #Selma55. To #TeamPete supporters it has been fun getting to know y'all after my girl dropped out. You're welcome to stick around. Hugs & support to y'all 🤗

Real Talk LONG Rage Thread:

I try very hard to be ROTR compliant. But sometimes, you just have to call some shit out. Especially when there is so much at stake. Yes, I'm #TeamPete. But, I'm somewhat new to giving a damn about politics & my views are raw. And maybe we need raw.
Let's talk about the billionaires. Steyer and Bloomie. GIVE ME A GODDAMN BREAK. Neither one of them are effectual in any way except monetarily. Neither can debate worth a damn. Bloomie can barely grasp the english language - in fact, he's a TRUMP CLONE. Steyer is a bump on a log.
Sure, if you want a fucking TRUMP CLONE or a wallflower to run this country because they BOUGHT THE AMERICAN PRESIDENCY, keep supporting them. ALSO let's not forget that BLOOMIE is a goddamn RACIST BIGOT. He's a liar. HE IS NO DIFFERENT THAN TRUMP. Plenty of receipts out there.

@PeteButtigieg Thank you, Jaclyn in Highland Park, IL!

Let’s keep this theme going. @PeteButtigieg took me on our first date on August 28th. (We went to a South Bend Cubs Game.) So who wants to pitch in $828? 👉 p4a.us/TheGame Image

THREAD. Someone asked me about @PeteButtigieg's donations from Millionaires & Billionaires, so let me see if I can make this as simple as possible...
1. The max donation ANYONE can give to a candidate in the 2020 election cycle is $2800 for the primary & $2800 for the general. You can, technically, donate $5600 now, but if they do not win the nomination to the general election, then candidates have to return that second $2800.
2. @PeteButtigieg has donations from more than 800,000 individuals. The average contribution in the fourth quarter was $33 and 98% of contributions were less than $200. (max=$2800) He doesn't accept money from registered federal lobbyists, corporate PACs or fossil fuel industry.

I've never seen Pete Buttigieg speak more passionately and authentically than when talking about how Trump has wronged the intelligence community.

Hey #TeamPete! I went to IA and I'd like to share my thoughts w/ you. First, you should know I've NEVER volunteered for a campaign before. I've never texted complete strangers, called complete strangers, and knocking on complete strangers' doors is possibly my worst nightmare 1/
...until now. I'm so inspired by @PeteButtigieg and #TeamPete that I went to #IA on the spur of the moment with a near stranger I'd only just met! @melissagrizzle! And she's awesome! Turns out my husband and her brother were colleague friends in KC! 😂 2/

Hey #TeamPete, wanted to speak to you personally on this morning's pieces on race as it relates to this campaign. Hope you'll take the time to hear from me. Thread.
1| I say it often because it's true: I'll go to the mat for this team every time. Full stop. Getting to be in the trenches with this particular crop of extraordinary human beings on the daily is most likely the coolest thing I'll ever do and I'm so good with that.
2| Part of those trenches includes being introspective when faced with stories like these. However, Pete for America has a lot to be proud of, both internally and externally. Read more here: medium.com/the-moment-by-…
