Gay US mayor announces presidential bid

This is the mayor of South announced Bend in the USA state of in at a rally on Sunday evening (local time).

Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, noted the emphasis by most Medicare for All supporters on "multiple pathways" to universal coverage as a potential point of contrast and "fodder for debate" with Sanders.

The gay, liberal mayor of a small United States city in the conservative stronghold of in officially launched his presidential bid Sunday, joining an increasingly crowded field of Democrats competing for their party's 2020 nomination. "That's why I'm here today to tell a different story than 'Make America Great Again".

Buttigieg is joining a crowded, diverse field of more than a dozen Democratic candidates, with progressive appeal featuring his Christian faith and sexual identity.

Buttigieg's candidacy would mark the first time an openly gay politician has snagged a spot on a major party's ticket, and he would also be the youngest leader to serve in the Oval Office, barely a few years older than the legally minimum age.

"Our marriage exists by the grace of a single vote on the US Supreme Court".

Buttigieg said three principles will guide his campaign: freedom, security and democracy.

"Take it from Chasten and me", he said, gesturing to his husband in the audience who has been a prominent part of his campaign.

Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., with 7%; Kamala Harris of California, 6%; and Cory Booker of New Jersey, 4%; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, 3%; and Sens.

Although Buttigieg is making his announcement official on Sunday, he officially dropped "exploratory" from his committee with the Federal Election Commission on Friday. "But as more and more people around the country begin to hear our bold vision for the future, more and more people are investing in this effort", Buttigieg said in a statement.

"We can't say it's much of a democracy when twice in my lifetime the electoral college has overruled the American people", Buttigieg said.

Doctors remove tiny bees living in woman's eyes
Sweat bees got their name because they are drawn to the moisture and salt of human perspiration - both are found in tears. The insects had made a new home inside the woman's eyelid - that is, until they were all successfully removed alive.

Many in the crowd wore square "Pete 2020" stickers.

Sanders, who has been outspoken about wealth inequality for decades, made headlines this week when he announced that he will release 10 years of tax returns on Monday - filings expected to show that the senator made millions from book sales.

Mayor Pete officially threw his hat into the ring of 2020 presidential contenders at a rally in South Bend, Indiana.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-V.T., who recently entered the 2020 Democratic presidential race, vowed in an interview on Tuesday with The New York Times to release ten years of tax returns by April 15, Tax Day. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Buttigieg would be America's first openly gay president. Klobuchar wants to draw a sharp distinction with President Donald Trump, who is still trying to repeal "Obamacare".

Williams-Preston says she hopes that if Buttigieg becomes president, he would take the lessons he learned in South Bend forward.

There were thousands of people just like Jessica in the audience traveling across the country to catch a glimpse of history from Manhattan to OR to Denver to right here in South Bend. We asked a handful of economists and think tanks with a range of perspectives to estimate total American health care expenditures in 2019 under such a plan.

"It's local government where government works best", said Austin Mayor Steve Adler. He graduated from Harvard University, was a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford and speaks seven languages.

The Buttigieg campaign also unveiled its new "Pete 2020" campaign logo and website, created by Brooklyn-based design firm Hyperakt, Fast Company reports.

The latter would allow undocumented migrants brought to the United States as children to receive a renewable two-year grace period and become eligible for a work permit.

"If (Buttigieg) gets elected, it would undoubtedly have a very positive effect on us", he said, adding his site would like to translate and share more articles on the candidate.
