Pete Buttigieg announces end of White House bid

Pete Buttigieg, who entered the Democratic presidential race as a relative unknown and positioned himself as the future of the party during an improbable rise to the top tier of a crowded 2020 field, planned on Sunday to end his White House bid, a campaign aide said.

Pete Buttigieg announces end of White House bid

"Our goal has always been to help unify Americans to defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for our values," Buttigieg, 38, said.

"So we must recognize that, at this point in the race, the best way to keep faith with those goals and ideals is to step aside and help bring our party and our country together.

So tonight I am making the difficult decision to suspend my campaign for the presidency." Buttigieg would have been the first openly gay major-party presidential nominee in U.S. history.
