The Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttegieg, is gaining in popularity. The Democrat has launched a long-shot run for President of the United States, and has gotten some good traction.
However, as Tony Katz notes, that traction comes at the expense of Indiana.
Like Indiana media did during the RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) conversation, Buteegieg didn't miss a moment to try and elevate himself while attempting to put down Hoosiers. Yet his own story about winning re-election, after coming out as gay, with 80% of the vote proves the lack of bigotry in the state. So why is he p;aying into the disgusting stereotype that Hoosiers are bigots?
Is that how you win the presidency? Insult your home state?
