Pete Buttigieg echoes Warren with $80B rural broadband plan

Pete Buttigieg echoes Warren with $80B rural broadband plan Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg has unveiled his plan to address the broadband gap in this country: an $80 billion "Internet For All" initiative and set of related reforms. It echoes Senator Elizabeth Warren's (D-MA) announcement last week, which is generally speaking a good thing. It's detailed in a document entitled "Investing in an American Asset: Unleashing the Potential of Rural America," which feels like it may rub people the wrong way. It seems to imply that rural America is an "asset" to the rest of America, and that its potential has not yet been unleashed. But that's just a tone thing.

Pete Buttigieg is vying to become America' s first-ever millennial president, but will have to answer hard questions about his experience first. For someone who wants to be president, Buttigieg has exhibited a notable reluctance to talk about policy.

Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg speaks Norwegian, and several other candidates in the 2020 race also speak a second language. But for presidential contenders, being bilingual is not always a plus. Why are Americans surprised when politicians speak a foreign language?

Kennedy, the former senator and attorney general beloved by liberals, was assassinated in California in 1968 while seeking the Democratic nomination for president. His brother, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated in 1963.

Buttigieg is among the Democratics who have been campaigning over the last few days at the Iowa State Fair.

"I'm running for president because it's time to have somebody in the Oval Office who will stick up for American values," Buttigieg said during a speech at the fair Tuesday.
