Pete Buttlieg endorsed Joe Biden tonight at an event in Texas.

Here is CNN:

“When I ran for president we made it clear that the whole idea was about rallying the country together to defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for the values that we share,” Buttigieg said at a campaign stop.
 
“And that was always a goal that was much bigger than me becoming president and it is in the name of that very same goal that I am delighted to endorse and support Joe Biden for President.”

There was also this moment which was super sweet:

Despite the acrimony, it is common for candidates who once sparred in a primary to come together once one drops out.
That much was made clear Monday night when Biden told supporters that Buttigieg reminds him of his son, Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46.
“I don’t think I’ve ever done this before, but (Buttigieg) reminds me of my son, Beau. I know that may not mean much to most people, but to me it’s the highest compliment I can give any man or woman,” Biden said.
“Like Beau, he has a backbone like a ramrod. I really mean this. I think about it,” Biden said.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
