Pete Buttigieg's campaign asset: 'Do I have a great husband or what?'

The star of presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s campaign rally the other night in San Francisco was obviously the mayor who has vaulted into the national conversation about who will be the Democratic nominee.

But his husband, Chasten Buttigieg, is becoming a star in his own right — complete with 322,000 very active Twitter followers. He often makes separate campaign stops on the road than his husband, the candidate. That could explain why the cheers when Chasten took the stage to introduce South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg were nearly as loud as the roars for the candidate.

Part of that is because the pair are making history with every campaign stop — modeling what a married gay couple would look like in the White House, a point illustrated when they were featured on the cover of Time magazine under the headline, “First Family.”

1. Chasten is a jewel!

 

I would give my right arm to attend a WH party hosted by Chasten.

2. How times have changed

 

It was only yesterday that saying anything even close to that was an automatic deal-breaker.

Good on them.
