Buttigieg rocked national politics when he ran for president, becoming the first openly gay politician to defend his lifestyle and seek empathy from voters.
Although he did not win the vote of the Democrats, his advance was enough to position him as one of the political figures with the greatest projection at the national level, and one of the rising stars of the Democratic Party.
Her husband Chasten, who is a professor, recently sparked controversy for complaining about the high cost of living in Washington, DC, where they would have struggled to find an apartment.
Secretary Buttigieg’s tweet has had more than 100,000 reactions between “likes” and retweets, as well as endorsement messages, such as Jon Cooper, who was President of National Finance for Biden in 2016 and who was the majority leader of the Suffolk County, New York, legislature.
“As gay parents of FIVE adopted children, my husband @ RobertCoooper58 and I want to send you and Chasten a heartfelt congratulations. We are happy for you! ”, He expressed.
