Why Pete Buttigieg Dropped Out Of U.S. Presidential Race

SOUTH BEND, Indiana (The Adobo Chronicles, Indianapolis Bureau) – Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg ended his extraordinary presidential campaign on Sunday night, just hours before the Super Tuesday primaries.

After privately informing donors, staff, and key supporters, the 38 year-old Democrat addressed a rally in his hometown, saying that in the wake of Saturday’s South Carolina primary, his path to the nomination had “narrowed to a close for our candidacy, if not our cause.” Fresh-faced and articulate, he emphasized themes of hope, inclusion, and change. 

In speaking with The Adobo Chronicles after the rally, Buttigieg said that the main reason for his dropping out was not because he thought an openly-gay candidate cannot win the U.S. presidential election  Rather, he said it would be almost impossible for him to win because voters could hardly spell or pronounce his name.

Good point!
