Pete Buttigieg ends his historic presidential campaign in USA (video)


Pete Buttigieg ended his campaign for Presidential seat on Sunday night finishing up the White House offer that vaulted the once-obscure city hall leader from South Bend, Indiana, to a top presidential contender.

Buttigieg made official announcement during a hurriedly arranged occasion on Sunday in South Bend, where the previous city hall leader said "today is a critical point in time... the fact of the matter is the way has limited to a nearby, for our nomination, notwithstanding our motivation." Washington (CNN) reports.

Watch the video below:


"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," Buttigieg said. "So tonight, I am making the difficult decision to suspend my campaign for the presidency."

Buttigieg added: "We have a responsibility to concede the effect of remaining in this race any further. Our goal has always been to help unify Americans to defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for our values."

Buttigieg's run was historic. He is the first openly gay man to launch a competitive campaign for president, and he broke barriers by becoming the first gay candidate to earn primary delegates for a major party's presidential nomination.

After initial success in Iowa and New Hampshire, Buttigieg's campaign struggled to win over voters of color, a key base to the Democratic Party, which hurt his performance in Nevada and South Carolina, two states where Buttigieg finished significantly behind the race's frontrunners.

Buttigieg was scheduled to fly from Selma, Alabama, to Dallas, Texas, on Sunday, but during the flight he informed reporters that he would be flying back to his hometown of South Bend to make an announcement on the future of his campaign. That announcement, aides said, is that he is ending his run.

Buttigieg made the decision on Sunday, aides said, after he struggled to compete in South Carolina's primary and had little path toward success on Super Tuesday.

"He believes this is the right thing to do right now for our country and the country to heal this divided nation and defeat President Trump," the aide said.
