Saddened to learn of the passing of former Rep. Berkley Bedell. His legacy is still felt in the scores of rural communities he lifted up during the Farm Crisis and in the work of the Iowans he inspired to enter public service. My deepest condolences are with the Bedell family.

I’m proud to stand with  @SEIU 1984 in their fight for fair wages for New Hampshire state employees, as recommended by an independent fact-finder’s report. As president, I will stand with unions demanding fair wages for their members—and I will stand those demanding  #UnionsForAll.

Mayor  @Pete Buttigieg’s plan is driven by an important underlying goal: to reclaim the promise & potential of public education to educate every student equitably, regardless of geography or demography.  #AFTvotes https://www.aft.org/press-release/aft-president-randi-weingarten-pete-buttigiegs-education-plan

An underfunded classroom is where many children first learn what it means to be considered less-than in the United States. @PeteButtigieg will pursue equity in the classroom so that every student can reach their potential:

“The promise we make in America is that every child should have access to an education that will give them the power to live a life of their choosing.” — @Pete Buttigieg https://medium.com/the-moment-by-pete-for-america/keeping-the-promise-for-americas-children-9ce50991...

“When we strengthen our education system, we strengthen our democracy. And with these policies, we won’t just teach students about America’s founding value of freedom; we will embed it into the American experience for all.”

The promise we make in America is that every child should have access to an education that will give them the power to live a life of their choosing. Today I'm proud to announce an education plan that centers on students, teachers, and parents. http://peteforamerica.com/policies/education

Now more than ever, the American people deserve transparency from their president. I’m urging McKinsey to do the right thing, and in the meantime, I’m providing a summary of my work. https://medium.com/the-moment-by-pete-for-america/my-time-at-mckinsey-466f058e9401

While we wait for more information, my thoughts are with the victims and their families. Service members and the dedicated civilians who support them deserve nothing less than safety on American soil and communities free from gun violence. Enough.

South Benders like Arielle are leading @PeteButtigieg’s campaign of inclusion and belonging.

NEW: Three former Obama administration officials endorse  @Pete Buttigieg, citing the power of his message and his ability to unite the country around our shared values. Welcome to  #TeamPete,  @Reggie Love,  @Austan Goolsbee, and Linda Douglass! https://www.cnn.com/2019/12/05/politics/pete-buttigieg-obama-endorsements/index.html

“An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents.” —Alexander Hamilton

This president has berated and demeaned our allies, tarnished our credibility abroad, and put political and personal motives above the national interest. We are seeing the results—from betrayal on the battlefields of Syria to mockery among world leaders at NATO.

Thank you, South Carolina, for the meaningful conversations and Southern hospitality. We’ll be back soon. 4

I will be a commander in chief who knows what it means to be sent abroad on the orders of a president—one who will keep America’s promise to those who've kept theirs. Thank you,  @VoteVets. It is an honor to have your endorsement. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/04/us/politics/pete-buttigieg-votevets-endorsement.html

Today I visited  @The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, a haunting reflection on our country’s history of white supremacy and racial violence, and a sobering reminder of the injustices persisting today. We must act to dismantle racial inequity in our lifetimes—the American project depends on it.

We’re exactly two months away from the Iowa caucuses—our first big electoral test and a defining moment for our campaign. It’s going to take all of us, working together, to get there. Are you with @PeteButtigieg? →

It’s time to guarantee workplace protections for all American workers—from gig economy workers to student workers. I stand in solidarity with the  @UAW and student workers organizing across the country. The  @Harvard University administration should negotiate in good faith with  @Harvard Grad Students Union-UAW.
