Joe Biden wins again this weekend, though it comes with the removal of a man from the presidential race whom I much admired. As a gay man I was never so proud of any other person seeking the highest office in my lifetime.
Mayor Pete’s intellect and personality were the stuff that made me pay heed to his candidacy. His being a gay man, who spoke candidly about coming out and finding the love of his life and marrying, allowed our nation to take yet one more step forward.
My politics has been with Biden since 1987, and Pete’s moderate and policy-driven candidacy allowed me to gravitate towards his ideas for the White Hose. With Pete taking a move today to end his race gives Biden a stronger hand moving forward. I posted last night we needed two more candidates to leave the race, and now one more remains…Minnesota’s Senator.
