Buttigieg Ends Campaign

U.S. presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has ended his campaign.

Buttigieg made the announcement last night.

He failed to win enough votes in the states that have already held their primaries.

The 38-year-old was mayor of South Bend, Indiana, from 2012 to 2020.

Buttigieg launched his campaign for the 2020 United States presidential election on April 14, 2019.

He became the first openly gay person to launch a major presidential campaign.

Despite initially low expectations, he gained significant momentum in mid-2019 when he participated in several town halls, forums, and debates.

Buttigieg narrowly won the pledged delegate count in the Iowa caucuses and tied the pledged delegate count in the New Hampshire primary.
