Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean endorsed South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg to be the next Democratic National Committee Chair during an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
“Our leadership is old and creaky, including me. We got to have this guy, 36-years-old, running this party,” Dean told the panel. “I had dinner with him last night. He is really, really capable and smart. He runs a city of a hundred thousand people, he’s got a thousand people in his work force, he is what we need.”
Buttigieg is seen as something of a long shot to win the chair race, trailing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez. Asked about Buttigieg’s chances, Dean conceded he would need multiple ballots to win.
“I think Pete is a lot of people’s second choice,” Dean told the panel.
