Former Charlottesville, Va., mayor endorses Buttigieg

By The Associated Press

The former mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia, is endorsing Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign.

Michael Signer (SIGN-er) tells the AP that Buttigieg was one of the people whose advice he sought ahead of the deadly 2017 clash between white supremacists and counter protesters.

He says he turned to Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, because of his past experience as an intelligence officer in Afghanistan. Signer says Buttigieg encouraged him to relocate the demonstration from a smaller park to a larger space to improve security.

Joe Biden has cited the clash — and President Donald Trump’s response to it — as a central reason he decided to run for the Democratic nomination.
