Buttigieg to Pence: If you have a problem with who I am, your quarrel is with my creator.
WASHINGTON – Pete Buttigieg got a hero’s welcome as he took the stage Sunday at a fundraising brunch for a group that supports LGBTQ candidates.
But as he spoke to a packed hotel ballroom illuminated with lavender lights, Buttigieg shared something that he’s still uncomfortable admitting.
“That if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me.
Buttigieg gets easy applause lines at Democratic-friendly audiences, as he did Sunday, for criticizing Pence when he talks about being gay.
Likewise, Brian Tyler, said he knew he had to come to the brunch when he found out Buttigieg was coming.
But Victory Fund President Annise Parker hinted Sunday that the group will make an exception and endorse Buttigieg after he officially becomes a candidate. »
