Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten, has opened up about their first date and it’s as cute and dorky as you imagine.
Chasten spoke to NowThis as part of his husband’s campaign to become the first openly gay president of the United States in 2020.
The current First Gentleman of South Bend, Indiana, (and possibly future first First Gentleman) said: ‘Our first date – it was actually supposed to be coffee but I got stuck in rush hour traffic getting out of Chicago.
‘So we moved it to dinner. And when I pulled up in front of his house to pick him up he opened the door and we both said “howdy” at the same time and then we both said “what, that’s my word!”
‘It was kind of a cute meet cute.’
In the video he also touches on how Pete’s campaign has inspired LGBTI people across the country. Also, he spoke about the continued fight for rights.
He adds: ‘I don’t think we can be comfortable with where we’re at now. Equality wasn’t won when we were granted marriage equality.
‘We can’t be complacent with where we are now. We’re just getting started.’
Pete Buttigieg is joining several other candidates in a bid to become the Democratic nomination for the 2020 election. Others include former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders.
