The Iowa caucuses are the first major contest of the United States presidential primary season. It is a strong indicator of how a presidential candidate will do in later contests.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the half Maltese South-Bend Indiana Mayor who is running for president currently holds the majority of the voting for the state of Iowa at 26.8%, with Bernie Sanders following closely at 25.2%.
The state party has still not announced a winner from Monday’s vote, due to technical malfunctions, but things are looking real good for Mayor Pete.
The eventual nominee will challenge President Donald Trump, a Republican, in November’s White House election.
Can you imagine having a half-Maltese man as the president of the United States of America???
“So we don’t know all the results, but we know by the time it’s all said and done, Iowa, you have shocked the nation,” Mayor Pete shares. “Because by all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious.”
The candidates will move across a number of nationwide state-by-state votes, known as primaries and caucuses, which ends at the Democratic Party’s national convention in Wisconsin this July.
A huge good luck to Mayor Pete.
