Pete wins important NH endorsement

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/pete-buttigieg-lands-key-new-hampshire-endorsement/

New Hampshire Congresswoman Annie Kuster endorsed former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Wednesday, becoming the first member of the first-in-the-nation primary state's congressional delegation to back a presidential contender.

Kuster, who sat on the steering committees for then-Senators Barack Obama in 2007-08 and John Kerry in 2003-04, has been named national co-chair of the Buttigieg campaign.


"With our country so consumed by division, Pete Buttigieg is the leader who can finally turn the page on the Trump presidency and bring our nation together to usher in a new era where we finally solve our most urgent problems," Kuster said in a statement. "We need a leader who recognizes that the office of the presidency has the power to bridge our differences and Pete Buttigieg is that leader. Like Barack Obama before him, Pete is young, inspiring, brings fresh ideas to the table, and is motivated to win."


"The importance of four term NH Congresswoman @AnnMcLaneKuster's endorsement of @PeteButtigieg cannot be overstated in a year anyone could win NH," New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley wrote on Twitter. "The last four nominees of the party were endorsed by Annie. Most impressive endorsement in NH so far this cycle."

2. This really is a big deal

Here is some other coverage (Also, it's evident from other, earlier stories - no time to find links right now, but I'll look later - that Kuster did due diligence, getting acquainted with all the other candidates over the last few months. This was not a snap decision. And she seems like she's cut from somewhat the same cloth as Pete - thus, a natural ally. Glad that she's going to be a national co-chair).
