A Democratic strategist praised South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s “real moral authority,” predicting that Buttigieg could be a “surprise” front-runner.
Former Clinton administration staffer Michael Gordon told Newsweek that Buttigieg’s performance at Tuesday night’s debate stood out from other presidential candidates and that the Democratic mayor “definitely got more aggressive.” Gordon is the chief executive of strategic communications at Group Gordon.
“You could picture him more going toe-to-toe with [President Donald] Trump,” Gordon told Newsweek. “He has a real moral authority in the way he talks, so he’s someone … who could surprise in, like Iowa.”
