This tweet from Chasten Buttigieg will make you ugly cry

The results of the Iowa caucuses are still trickling in. So far, only 71 percent of the vote has been announced. As of right now, Pete Buttigieg is leading with 27%, followed by Bernie Sanders at 25%, and Elizabeth Warren at 18%, though those numbers could easily change as more data is released.

Despite the jury still being out, Buttigieg declared victory in Iowa on Monday night, telling supporters in Des Moines: “We are going on to New Hampshire victorious!”

When the 2020 hopeful received pushback the next day for declaring himself the victor before the Iowa Democratic Party had issued any results, he explained that his campaign’s internal data is what led him to make the declaration.

Then yesterday evening, Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten, tweeted: “It gets better.” Along with an image of himself and Pete embracing on stage in Des Moines shortly after Pete had declared victory.

Regardless of how you feel about Buttigieg or his campaign, if that doesn’t make you just a little weepy, you might want to check to see if you have a pulse.

The tweet has received over 26,000 likes, 2,000 retweets, and hundreds of comments.

DNC chairman Tom Perez announced yesterday that DNC staffers were “assisting” the Iowa Democratic Party in getting the official Iowa caucus results released as soon as possible.
