Help Mayor Pete Buttigieg qualify for the Democratic debates

Help Mayor Pete Buttigieg qualify for the Democratic presidential debates. He needs 65,000 donors from 20 states to qualify. Helps us break this LGBT glass ceiling. Please donate to Mayor Pete & share. Thanks so much.

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is a fresh and exciting new voice in Democratic politics.

He’s an openly-gay millennial, a military vet who served in Afghanistan, and an unabashed liberal from a decidedly red state. Mayor Pete minces no words when taking on Republicans (here he is taking down Mike Pence), and he wants to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020.

But that won’t happen unless Buttitieg qualifies for the Democratic presidential debates by receiving donations from at least 65,000 unique donors, with a minimum of 200 unique donors per state in at least 20 states. Please use this page to make a donation and put Pete on the stage.

A lot of us haven’t decided who we want to support in 2020. But one thing is sure, if you listen to Pete Buttitieg, you’ll be impressed. He’s great on climate, guns, trade, foreign policy, health care, immigration and civil rights. President Obama even called Pete one of four Democrats who represent the future of the Democratic party.

And finally, as a gay man, I’m excited to see a serious LGBT candidate finally running for the presidency. Yet another glass ceiling is being broken.

Pete’s is a voice we need at the Democratic presidential debates. Please donate now to help ensure that Mayor Pete Buttitieg has enough donors to qualify for the Democratic debates.
