Buttigieg's address was light on details about specifically how he would implement many of plans, and some were familiar refrains from past interviews. But in general, he called for an end to open-ended wars, for the United States to fight authoritarianism abroad, to treat climate change as a security threat, to recommit to former President Barack Obama's Iran nuclear deal, to deter Russia from interfering in U.S. elections and to be a world leader. 

He spoke for the hour, often drawing loud ovations from the crowd of more than 1,800 in Bloomington, a liberal college town in what's a largely conservative state. 

Buttigieg said he believes the Iran-nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration was preventing that nation from acquiring nuclear weapons.
