Interview after the town hall ( on Facebook )
On the impeachment trial:
Senate Republicans are telling Americans it's ok to lie, to cheat, to invite a foreign power to interfere with our democracy.— Pete Buttigieg (@PeteButtigieg) January 27, 2020
This election is our chance to turn the page on the politics of cynicism and restore integrity and decency to our government. #PeteOnFox pic.twitter.com/tmYUhyCdN2
How can you appeal to Republicans?
Worth looking at each campaign & asking: is this campaign depending on American unity & optimism in order to win or depending on more division & anger to win? Candidates have incentive to govern the same way they won because they want to win again.— Republicans for Pete (@PeteRepublicans) January 27, 2020
Vote accordingly. #PeteOnFox pic.twitter.com/NysXTiupnp
Pete’s closing statement
Tonight @PeteButtigieg showed you exactly why I’m proud to share him with the country. Unflappable. Honest. Ready to tackle the issues and always attempting to unify rather than tear down. Presidential. If you’re proud too, please chip in. #PeteOnFox https://t.co/zcVAlR1ZdW— Chasten Buttigieg (@Chas10Buttigieg) January 27, 2020
Anne and Chasten are at the town hall too.
"I think the difference is going to come in rural areas because everyone else is fighting over Waterloo and Dubuque and Iowa City, and who’s fighting over Storm Lake? Pete Buttigieg is the only one showing up.” -@cullen_art #iacaucus https://t.co/TCK8fhMRlj— Sean Manning (@SeanManning_) January 27, 2020
IMPORTANT THREAD FROM ILYSE HOGUE REGARDING THE ABORTION QUESTION
Ilyse is the president of NARAL, a pro-choice group, and she worked with Mayor Pete to establish a clinic in South Bend. She has always been very positive about Pete as a friend to women’s right.
Much to unpack regarding the abortion question that Kristen Day asked @PeteButtigieg tonight on Fox News. Let's start with the massive applause in the room when Pete says he's pro-choice and a woman should make that decision. Way more than Kristen got:. /1 https://t.co/FT1dco4n4e— ilyse hogue (@ilyseh) January 27, 2020
TWEETS FROM VIEWERS AND PUNDITS
Watching @PeteButtigieg on Fox feels almost soul cleansing. Positive, logical, life affirming messages, coming from an eloquent, articulate, compassionate leader. Forgot what that felt like! Quoting another brilliant leader, @MichelleObama “When they go low, we go high!” ❤️❤️❤️💯— Corny Koehl (@CornyKoehl) January 27, 2020
What we share is a desire for our president to build upon our common goals and listen to our differences; to appreciate those who agree with him and honor those who don’t. @PeteButtigieg is exactly who we need in the White House. #PeteOnFox @Lis_Smith @TheStefanSmith #TeamPete— Bevin Harde (@kershaw198) January 27, 2020
We need to find a nominee who can turn out the base, solidify our gains w/ swing voters, and cut margins among Republicans. The trick is he or she needs to do it without changing his or her message. What these standing ovations on Fox show is that that candidate is @PeteButtigieg https://t.co/VTSvePKWKg— Hari Sevugan (@HariSevugan) January 27, 2020
Eight days before the caucuses, Buttigieg just got an hour inside the living rooms of Iowa voters watching Fox News in the 31 counties that flipped from Obama to Trump in 2016.— Adam Wren (@adamwren) January 27, 2020
Pete did so well. He’s took questions from people who not only agree with him, but people who don’t agree with him. We learn through thoughtful dialogue and debate. It’s why @PeteButtigieg willl be a president for all Americans and not just his base. #PeteForAmerica #PeteOnFox pic.twitter.com/HQqHgtei5Y— Bob Duff, Senate Majority Leader, CT (@senatorduff) January 27, 2020
Mayor @PeteButtigieg just laid out the case for War Powers reform in some of the clearest terms of this campaign -- he's ready to end the bipartisan failure of Presidents circumventing Congress to take military action, and won't let Congress shirk its responsibility. #PeteOnFox— VoteVets (@votevets) January 27, 2020
Buttigieg, at Fox News town hall, rebukes Trump's "headaches" statement about 34 U.S. troops left with brain injuries from Iranian missile:— Vaughn Hillyard (@VaughnHillyard) January 27, 2020
"We're talking about someone, the privileged son of multimillionaire...[who] then minimizes the injuries of somebody who did [serve]."
This pro life question in the Fox News townhall with @PeteButtigieg has been asked 4 different ways. He already answered it. Mayor Pete stands by a woman's right to choose and doesn't believe the govt should dictate that.— Ameshia Cross (@AmeshiaCross) January 27, 2020
How many ways must he answer the same question
This Iraq war veteran agrees with @PeteButtigieg. It’s best for veterans to lead in foreign policy when it is about sending our men & women overseas to unnecessary forever wars. I trust #PeteForPresident to lead me as Commander in Chief.#PeteOnFox #TeamPete— Winston Orozco (@WinstonOrozco_1) January 27, 2020
Buttigieg on Fox News just now: "I've heard some folks saying, This is no time to take a risk. And I agree, but I think the biggest risk that we could take, right now, would be to try to go up against this president, with the same old playbook that we've been relying on." https://t.co/ptBwIJISER— Dan Merica (@merica) January 27, 2020
It was a cute line that folks laugh at when @PeteButtigieg referred to that young leader as, "Madame President," but it reveals a deeper fact about who #PresidentPete will be: someone who respects every single person he sees. #PeteOnFox #FoxNewsTownHall— People of Faith for Pete (@PoFaith4Pete) January 27, 2020
