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 🤗

A #TeamPeteThread: I first heard of @PeteButtigieg as I was sitting on my sofa on a cold Arch night in MN and tuned into @CNN. I was immediately intrigued on the idea of restoring the values of freedom, security & democracy. So I donated! #PeteForAmerica #WinTheEra
I sat on that same couch in April to watch @PeteButtigieg officially announce his candidacy for the @TheDemocrats nomination for POTUS. #TeamPete #PeteForAmerica #PeteForPresident #WinTheEra
Then in May I got the privilege of hearing @PeteButtigieg speak @FineLineMPLS about waking up the next day to see 2 men on the cover of @TIME w/ the title “First Family”. We even chatted for a couple minutes. BTW, all of this was in thanks to two generous #TeamPete folks.

Something I will legitimately never understand. why attack another candidate? You could use,the time and effort to volunteer, fund raise or canvas. you would, rather spend your time on a social media. platform bullying other people. Yes it does qualify as bullying.
Just don’t get this I literally don’t.
So here’s the thing. if we keep dividing ourselves further, and further Donald Trump, has already, won. end of line end of discussion. If you continue to further untrue,negatives about candidates Donald Trump has already won.

🚨 Breaking: #PeteButtigieg donated to an anti-LGBT marriage equality candidate per 2012 FEC filings.

Pete’s donation came at a crucial time in the fight for marriage equality.

🎥: #MayorPete-funded candidate Joe Donnelly reiterating his anti-equality position during a debate.
Per the FEC report, the “Donnelly for Indiana” campaign recorded a $409 donation on September 17, 2012 from #PeteButtigieg “Mayor” employed by the “City of South Bend.”

Joe Donnelly campaigned on anti-marriage equality even as the issue gained more support under President Obama.
#PeteButtigieg’s September 17, 2012 donation to an anti-marriage equality candidate needs to be seen in the context of the 2012 push for #MarriageEquality:

On May 9, 2012, Barack Obama told ABC News, “I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”

“Kids” from “lower income, minority neighborhoods” don’t have “someone they know personally who testifies to the value of education.” - Pete Buttigieg, 2011 South Bend Mayoral Candidate

#MayorPete #PeteForAmerica #Pete2020 #Buttigieg2020 #Buttigieg
🔦:The longer clip isn’t better:

#PeteButtigieg agreed (🗣: “definitely”) w/ Libertarian Pat Farrell that he/retired people could be mentors to kids.

Pete identifies poor “minority neighborhood” kids as needing mentors b/c no one they know “testifies to the value of education.”

Why this Boomer mom of two GenZ kids is supporting @PeteButtigieg. The theme this week for articles and posts and comments against Pete is his experience. What seems to be missing from this is when politics is experienced personally. Pete is a Millennial. What does that mean?
It means his generation and GenX were the warriors that fought Boomer and GenY wars. He wasn’t too young to be a counter-intelligence Officer in Afghanistan.
It means @Chas10Buttigieg was caught up in outrageous college tuition and has 6 digit debt because he wanted to teach.
It means that guns are still killing people in the streets, in schools, in places of worship, and backyards. It means they were raised in the years where they were taught everyone is equal but don’t see it in reality. It means pot being legal some places and others going to jail

Only 1 Dem candidate isnt a Billionaire or Millionaire or steeped in DC-speak.

Only 1 Dem candidate shares $100k of college debt, lives in a fixer-upper & doesn’t have the priviledge security of a senate seat. /1

#PeteForPresident #PeteForAmerica
Only 1 Dem candidate lives w the ugly reality that:
He can be legally denied an apartment or lease
Barred from ordering a cake
Denied the opportunity to donate blood
Banned from adopting a child
Legally fired from a job for being his true self

#PeteForPresident #PeteForAmerica
Only 1 Dem candidate geeks out on Green sewers
Has a spouse who has been homeless
Worked Intelligence in an active War Zone
Has the integrity, character, strength to admit when he’s wrong, take ownership & correct

A thread for this #TeacherTalkTuesday

Across the country, teachers and students are heading back to school. As a teacher, it’s one of my favorite times of the year -- one filled with incredible optimism that reflects the hope that comes with a fresh start.
But we’re also at a make-or-break moment with our public education system. The same old debates have left us with underfunded schools, underpaid teachers, and growing inequality.
If we’re going to meet the challenges of today and the future, we have to get public education right. @PeteButtigieg has plans to transform how we fund our schools, value our teachers, and educate our students. We’re just getting started, but here are a few:

1/ Here’s a 🧵 of all the endorsements I’ve found for @PeteButtigieg, organized chronologically. If I accidentally omit anyone, I’ll add them at the end. I’ll also add new endorsements as they’re announced.
Thank you, endorsers!
2/ I believe @SteveGrossmanMA became the first to endorse #Pete2020, on 4/11. He is a former DNC Chair, former Massachusetts State Treasurer, and current CEO of the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, a non-profit that trains inner-city entrepreneurs.…
3/ Grossman called Pete “a Midwestern, down-to-earth, smart, savvy, in-touch candidate” who can flip industrial states. “My concern is the future of the US... I think Pete has the capacity to be the beacon for an awful lot of people who really feel a deep, deep sense of concern.”

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!

1/TYT, in their unending crusade 2 tear dwn Buttigieg, has shown again they r willing 2 misrepresent facts & mischaracterize events 2 meet their ends. This vid is latest example & while a lot 2 unpack, I’m going to focus on Cenk’s characterization of PD Chief demotion & the facts
2/Paraphrasing Cenk @ 4:30: “Black police chief (Boykins). Pete fired him. Why? There were tapes showing cops saying racist things. The police chief and other person revealed that information & it was inconvenient for Pete & SB so he was fired.” Lets break this down:
3/In court docs, officers - and Boykins - claim recordings began in 2010. Officers claim it was to monitor them for “loyalty.” These recordings allegedly continued for *two years* before Pete became Mayor.

@Asians4Pete @RobertoCSada @PeteButtigieg @SenGillibrand Because not too many people have the kind of analytical clarity based on firm principles and values that Pete does. I feel like Pete is a monk philosopher who spent years working out his views beliefs thoughts, ideas and underlying values, faith etc...
@Asians4Pete @RobertoCSada @PeteButtigieg @SenGillibrand And then thought about how they would apply in a real political world. Tested them while being a Mayor, making adjustments along the way. And then realized he could apply them at the national level as this unique moment of need...
@Asians4Pete @RobertoCSada @PeteButtigieg @SenGillibrand This is why he never falters and comes across authentic no matter where he speaks or to whom he speaks. They are part of his DNA. Embedded in his mind, brain and heart. So they just come out naturally. No one can beat that. And that gives him confidence and conviction...

On my phone I went to @PeteButtigieg's Twitter feed to hit a link that brought me to his mobilesite that offered me a hyperlink to open up the YouTube app which allowed me to cast to my TV a gay millennial announce he is ruining for President. Possibly the most 2019 sentence ever
If anyone needs it here is the link to the YouTube Live Stream. @PeteButtigieg is about to officially announce his candidacy for President of the United States. It will be a historic moment. #PeteForAmerica

.@PeteButtigieg starts off his announcement with a prayer from local Reverend. #PeteForAmerica

(Very loud applause when @Chas10Buttigieg is mentioned)

Announcement is accidentally made by female in the middle of prayer. Rev says "listen to word of God." (Crowd goes wild).

THREAD: I know 2020 is supposed to be the year of women but when I see @PeteButtigieg I see myself, a gay millennial. Its so powerful and I csnt help but root for him. It's not something a straight white Christian man can understand, no matter how "woke" they are.
I always wanted to go into politics but didnt bc I thought l one day when I came out that would be that. To see someone just like me do something I always wanted to but that I never thought was possible is forcing me to reevaluate everything. I thought I was well adjusted
To our current reality, gsy rights are starting to be recognized and in parts of the country we are accepted as equals. But the past few weeks seeing someone serious running for an office I thought I could never hold has got me thinking. I would never suggest we should

Mayor Pete Buttigieg: “I get that I’m the young guy in the conversation, but I would say experience is what qualifies me to have a seat at this table”
“I know it’s more traditional to maybe come from Congress, to have a background in Washington. But I would also argue that we would be well served if Washington started to look more like our best run cities and towns rather than the other way around.”
“I have more years of govt experience under my belt than the president. I also have more years of executive government experience than the vice president, and more military experience than anybody to walk into that office on day once since George H W Bush”
