Buttigieg Picks Up Major Endorsement for DNC Chair

It may seem like it’s a long way off, but soon the men and women who will try to defeat Donald Trump on both sides of the aisle will start to make their way to New Hampshire and to Iowa and the other early states to begin the 2020 Presidential Race.

Some Democrats are hoping that Bernie Sanders may have another run or that Elizabeth Warren uses some of her political capital and intelligence to give it a go.  Caroline Kennedy, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, and a number of others might enter the race.

One man not being talked so much about is the guy that finished third this past election for the Democratic nomination.  That’s Martin O’Malley.

O’Malley, a popular governor, ran a strong campaign that just didn’t have the fire or resources of that of Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Nevertheless, he impressed many and, at 54 years old, is someone to watch in the future of the party.

In the race for DNC Chair, O’Malley has thrown his support behind South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.  O’Malley says that Buttigieg will bring the party the “fresh start” and “new leadership” that it needs.

While this is not the same as having Bernie Sanders’s endorsement or Hillary Clinton’s, this is a major political figure recognizing and endorsing a small city Mayor from Indiana to run the Democratic Party.

Pete just might win this thing yet!
