In a video that has quickly made waves on social media and has many talking, a Iowa voter who was supporting Pete Buttigieg asked if she could take her vote back after finding out he’s gay. The awkward exchange was captured on video.
TheHill reports an Iowa voter who had sought to support former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the state’s troubled caucuses on Monday changed her mind after learning he’s gay.
A Buttigieg precinct captain in Cresco, Iowa, is seen in video posted online telling the caucusgoer that a candidate’s sexuality shouldn’t matter after the woman asked to get her support card back.
“I would like you to just dig deep inside and think, should it matter if it’s a woman or if it’s a man or if they’re heterosexual or homosexual, if you believe in what they say? That’s my question to you,” Nikki Heever asks the caucusgoer.
Howard County Democratic Party Chairwoman Laura Hubka shared the video on Twitter, calling Heever a “wonderful example of Cresco.”
