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.

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

Today is David's 10-year ALS diagnosis (DX) anniversary. He's had symptoms since before 2003, a progressive muscular atrophy diagnosis since 2006, and was officially diagnosed with ALS in 2010. The first picture was taken in 2004. The second, last year. Life expectancy... 1/
... for someone with ALS is 2-5 years. David has smashed those odds! He's been sick since before the kids were born so we weren't sure our kiddos would ever get a chance to know their dad. We're lucky because he's been able to see them grow into AMAZING little humans! 2/
We've always known it wasn't going to be easy, but damn, it's been worth it. I'm so grateful that even 10-years post diagnosis he still somewhat able to eat, breathe, and talk on his own. That's...I can't even express how incredible that is! He's my hero and I don't say that...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.
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
