Buttigieg wins first endorsement from member of the CBC

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/pete-buttigieg-wins-first-endorsement-from-a-black-member-of-congress/2020/01/08/dc4de64e-3179-11ea-a053-dc6d944ba776_story.html

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg received his first endorsement from a member of the Congressional Black Caucus on Thursday when former Maryland lieutenant governor Anthony G. Brown announced his support for the outgoing mayor of South Bend, Ind.

“I firmly believe that Pete Buttigieg is the guy to lead our nation after we defeat Donald Trump and have to pick up the pieces and repair the damage of the last four years,” Brown said in an interview. “He’s well-versed and studied and really diligent about the issues from a policy standpoint.”


Brown will serve as a national campaign co-chairman, the first endorser the campaign has named to that position.

1. This is great news! And I suspect there will be more such endorsements as Pete goes forward.

2. It's a good article

But there's a paywall.

Here's another bit that I thought was important:

Brown acknowledged Buttigieg has received criticism for how he has approached racial issues in South Bend, but he said Buttigieg has not shied away from the critiques.

“We all suffer criticism,” Brown said. “The question is, how well do you take that criticism and sort of transform it into an overall constructive approach to addressing the challenges that are being raised? And I think he is really good at that and is open to it.”

Buttigieg’s campaign plans to deploy Brown on the campaign trail in the coming weeks, much of which the candidate will spend in Iowa during the final push to the Feb. 3 caucuses. That effort also includes new television ads, announced Tuesday, that will be airing in each of the four early primary states.
