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.

.@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/)

#TeamPete this VP talk is a big deal and it's starting to be weaponized against us and against @TeamJoe.

I know a lot of you want him for VP. And I also know a lot of you have ideas about who would be needed to balance the ticket with an old white man leading it.
Many of you are getting VERY UPSET when talking about it.

You know who is seeing this conversation? The people that want to hurt Joe's campaign. Trump supporters and Rose Twitter showed this weekend that they're willing to work together to try to take down Joe.
And you know what I've seen twice this morning? Rose accounts jumping in #TeamPete Twitter threads about Joe's VP to push the narrative that it's already been decided and that it's Amy Klobuchar.

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 🤗

Congratulations to Joe Biden and his team on tonight's win.

However... it's his first win ever.

Looking ahead, I'm positive Biden will get steamrolled by Bernie bc he only invested in SC.

I strongly believe in Pete's long game. I'm excited.

May the best candidate win 🤝
#TeamPete

This isn't a time to slow down. This is time to kick it into overdrive.

Do you want all of your blood, sweat, and tears to be all for naught?

Pete is bringing in massive amounts of people to his rallies.

Don't give up and push forward ✊🏽

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.

Disclaimer : This is going to be quite the long thread, so bear with me until I've said what's on my mind.

So, yesterday, some Bernie Bros, decided to spur the latest Buttigieg conspiracy, that @Lis_Smith has a burner account pretending to be a Nigerian man. 1/
@Lis_Smith That BS took me by surprise. As usual, when looking at something so absurd, I laughed it off... until I saw that it was trending and that people who should know better were RT it without verifying the likelihood of the theory. And in the matter of hours, damage was done. 2/
@Lis_Smith Chinedu was forced out of Twitter, chased by journalists asking to prove his identity and doxxed for the whole political Twitter to see.

And I'm furious. I'm furious because that could have been me. Well, it's almost been me. 3/

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.

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/

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-…

A year ago today, I saw the New York Times article announcing Pete’s presidential exploratory committee. I was one of the few (outside of South Bend) who knew his name. You see, he had captured my attention a year earlier. nytimes.com/2019/01/23/us/…
Actually, even earlier. I voted for him for treasurer in 2010. The current treasurer, Richard Mourdock (google him… yikes) was aggressively attacking the auto industry bailout, which I found shockingly unacceptable in a state so dependent on those union jobs. Pete lost.
From 2010-2016, several friends of mine moved to South Bend. South Bend?! I was surprised. I was familiar with the city, my husband graduated from Notre Dame about 15 years ago. From an outsider’s perspective, it didn’t seem to have much going for it. But I was wrong.

I think it’s time for a long thread. And I’ll title this:

“Systemic Racism is Subtle, and Deserves Deliberate Action Against it. That means I’ll Listen.”

I hope you’ll read everything I have to say:

#TeamPete #BLM #Democrats #Bernie2020 #Warren2020 #Biden2020
For a long, long time I’ve supported #BLM. I’ve donated money, argued for the group’s causes, ostracized friends and family in absolute devotion to the cause of eliminating systemic racism and destroying police brutality. (1)
One of my best pieces of writing came in defense of Colin Kaepernick, where I wrote against a community in West Virginia that didn’t just disagree with me, but hated my position. (2)
