The Hill reports:
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Sunday that staying in the race is the best thing he can do for both his party and the country. “Every day I am getting up, looking at how we can do what is best for the party, that is why we got into this race in the first place,” Buttigieg said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“A belief that this different message and a different kind of messenger could rally people together, could forge new alliances, could help us reach out in the very places where we have the best message and yet found ourselves defeated by President Trump in 2016 and cannot let that happen again,” he added.
“And every day we are in this campaign is a day that we have reached the conclusion that pushing forward is the best thing we can do for the country and for the party.”
