Running for president of the United States. Afghanistan vet, musician, businessman, husband to Chasten, and South Bend's "Mayor Pete." He/him. (BOOT-edge-edge)
South Bend, Indiana
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.

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.

This week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture finalized a new rule expected to end access to SNAP benefits for nearly 700,000 people — by enforcing tougher work standards and limiting exemptions.

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.
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.
International Day of Persons with Disabilities is a reminder to ensure that our health care system is ready and able to provide for Americans of all abilities: http://p4a.us/equity
