I’m just collecting random things here. So much of this praise should have been given while Pete was still in the race.
.@ananavarro on @PeteButtigieg: "His run has been historical. He broke glass ceilings. He made it easier for LGBTQ people to live their truth, showed that you can be gay, be who you are and still run for president and run for big things and not have to hide your identity." pic.twitter.com/b22qKrbBNb— The View (@TheView) March 2, 2020
"If there is somebody who has lived who has experienced this impact of the Trump administration, can relate to the Midwest... that would be Pete Buttigieg, and I think that he is gonna be quite the surrogate" - @VaughnHillyard w/ @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/w25Rxopoob— Deadline White House (@DeadlineWH) March 2, 2020
TWEETS WORTH SAVING
Pete Buttigieg was for me the perfect candidate for president -- brilliant, eloquent & uniquely qualified. I have no doubt he will remain a vital part of our national political conversation. Thank you, Pete, for all you have achieved. @PeteButtigieg @CNNPolitics @MSNBC— Anne Rice (@AnneRiceAuthor) March 1, 2020
Sir you have defied the odds and you are a rising star. You have inspired us all. I’m looking forward to see all the good that will come your way now and in the future! Thank you for being you! 🕊🕊— Henry T. Contreras (@HenryTContreras) March 1, 2020

A Buttigieg aide tells me the campaign raised $18.4 million in the month of February and over $25 million in the quarter so far. It would have been the campaign’s biggest fundraising quarter.— Jack Turman III (@jackturmanIII) March 3, 2020
Making a bold, way too early prediction that Pete Buttigieg could be the dominant figure in the Democratic Party for the next decade— Joel Payne (@paynedc) March 1, 2020
From start to finish (or more likely just pause), @PeteButtigieg has been the classiest of acts. Smart, calm, unifying, kind and thoughtful. Ever a leader, he was wise and generous today in his decision to step aside when the time was right. I can’t wait for him to become POTUS.— Susan Rice (@AmbassadorRice) March 2, 2020
Honored to have worked for @PeteButtigieg in my home state. Pete took no voter, no media outlet and no community for granted — we literally did seven events the day after the #iacaucus and I ran out of gas trying to keep up.— Kevin Donohoe (@kevinsidonohoe) March 2, 2020

Pete Buttigieg could’ve easily won the presidency. (a thread)— Karl Josef Co (@KarlJosefCo) March 2, 2020
Despite the false narratives & the supporter erasure that the media perpetuated, Pete was on the path to the nomination & the presidency.
These are the external factors that halted his momentum:
@PeteButtigieg please please please don’t lose your steam sir. You are our future. And I knew that even though you didn’t get it this go around...please stay involved in our national politics. Because you are what’s needed. Intelligence, energy, qualified....prepared.— Ryan Siu (@inthery) March 2, 2020
