Pete Buttigieg


FROM THE CANDIDATE

“We shouldn’t tolerate America becoming less democratic over our lifetimes. #HR1 would expand our rights as voters with much needed reforms like automatic voter registration and transparency on dark money. Now the Senate must act to protect our democracy.”

On getting rid of the Electoral College: “It’s gotta go. We need a national popular vote. It would be reassuring from the perspective of believing that we’re a democracy. But I also think it would be highly encouraging of voter participation on the national level.”

“Democracy is front and center right now, but some very important dimensions (like electoral college reform, DC statehood) get way too little attention. We must not become the first generation to see USA get less democratic versus more.”

via Twitter

“It’s time to end the forever wars. But in this White House, some of the same people who got us into Iraq now seem ready to stoke a new conflict. It’s another reason Congress must reassert its war powers.”

via Twitter

“But we’re going to build on that, actions that serve to begin the conversation about structural reform top, like Supreme Court reform and—and Electoral College reform.

I believe that candidates for the highest office in the land should be transparent and honest. They should play by the rules, pay their fair share, and be held accountable by the voters. That’s why I released 10 years of tax returns.
