Pete Buttigieg reportedly told his supporters Sunday he is suspending his campaign, according to Fox News. The move comes after former Vice President Joe Biden took South Carolina's Democratic primary by storm yesterday and after "Mayor Pete" only won the Iowa contest.
Voters in 14 states will head to the polls March 3, known as "Super Tuesday," when one-third of all delegates are at stake.
The first openly homosexual presidential candidate, Buttigieg is married and is Episcopalian. The South Bend, Indiana, mayor drew controversy for his pro-gay stand.
"My marriage has made me a better man," he said earlier in the campaign. "And yes, Mr. Vice President, it has moved me closer to God. If being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far above my pay grade. That's the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand, that if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator."
