I served with a special operations unit. I earned a purple heart serving my country. I believe in Pete Buttigieg and what he can do for our country because he’s had skin in the game and knows what service members have had to sacrifice.


Pete's military experience has prepared him to be our Commander in Chief

I am in need of hope for and with our nation. And there is something about Pete’s energy and spirit that creates calmness, promotes resiliency, and instills hope.

I believe Pete will be thoughtful, acting with courage and strength to make this a nation we can be proud of at home and abroad.

Pete focuses on the values and principles that unite us. He represents that idea that we are the ones that we've been waiting for.

When I listen to Mayor Pete speak, I feel hopeful that we can be the America I fought for so long ago
