Pete Buttigieg made a new friend
Pete Buttigieg made a new friend at the Iowa State Fair on Tuesday. – While Mayor Pete took questions at the Des Moines Register Political Soapbox, a woman asked the South Bend mayor if he would ride the Local 5 Giant Slide with her 4-year-old son. Pete said, “Well, I can’t say no to that! Of course, I’ll ride the slide with your son.” Pete said, eliciting cheers from the audience. “I don’t know what it means, but I will do it.” Pete Buttigieg would soon find out, is a large green-and-yellow structure that riders slide down on burlap sacks. It’s been an Iowa State Fair institution since the 1970s.
