Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg discusses his youth, leadership experience, inclusive policy plans, abortion, drug addiction and debt with moderator Chris Wallace in Claremont, New Hampshire.
Insurgent Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg acknowledged at the Fox News town hall in Claremont, New Hampshire Sunday evening that he needs to do more to appeal to "black and brown" voters, even as he confidently parried a series of policy questions -- and, on several occasions, went directly after President Trump.
Buttigieg argued that minority voters are "skeptical of people who seem to come out of nowhere," after moderator Chris Wallace noted that he was polling at one-percent support among nonwhite primary voters according to a recent Fox News poll.
With little equivocating, Buttigieg largely stuck to reminding voters of his core campaign pledges, and the lessons he learned from his six-month deployment to Afghanistan in 2014: "We do not send young men and women to war when there's an alternative," he emphasized.
