We are living on one of those blank pages in between chapters in American history. What comes next could be ugly – or it could be amazing. I hope you’ll join me in making sure that the next era is better than any that we’ve had so far:

The flag I wore on my shoulder represented a country that was known for keeping its word. But with the president considering pardoning war criminals even after they have been tried by a jury of their peers, that is undermining American moral authority and putting troops at risk.

Even though some of these hosts are not always there in good faith, I think a lot of people tune into this network in good faith. Whether it’s going on Fox or going into places where Democrats haven’t been seen much, we have to find people where they are–not change our values.

The way folks responded to the Fox News Town Hall tonight shows that we can connect with people anywhere while standing firm on our values. Help us build a campaign that can compete everywhere and change the conversation:

We have to make it less about him and more about what matters. That's the best way to defeat him.

I believe that the right of a woman to make her own decisions about her reproductive health and about her body is a national right. I believe it is an American freedom that should be enjoyed by women in every state. The next president needs to be ready to protect those rights.

Very interesting: Buttigieg uses his Fox News town hall to call out Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham - by name - for comments they have made. "There is a reason why anyone has to swallow hard and think twice" before going on Fox, he says.

The attacks on women’s reproductive freedoms show what the stakes are in this election. The next president needs to be the strongest president ever on women’s rights and equality and gender inclusion.

We asked South Bend, Indiana Mayor  how he'd approach reproductive rights as president. Here's what he had to say about that, his other policy priorities, and why he wants the 2020 Democratic nom:

YOU CAN STILL GET AN ABORTION IN ALABAMA! May 14
is a human right, at every stage & for every reason. We hope our state Senators will read Jenna King-Shepherd & Dina Zirlott's words & understand that abortion is necessary for the well-being of pregnant ppl & children.

Fleming Begaye Sr. was one of the last remaining Navajo Code Talkers, a group of soldiers whose language skills and patriotism helped us win World War II — his family is in our prayers.

The Alabama legislature is ignoring science, criminalizing abortion, and punishing women. Instead, the government's role should be to make sure all women have access to comprehensive affordable care, and that includes safe and legal abortion.

It’s time to end the forever wars. But in this White House, some of the same people who got us into Iraq now seem ready to stoke a new conflict. It’s another reason Congress must reassert its war powers.

Immigrants and refugees are not a problem that we need to handle, they are an asset to our nation and an essential part of the fabric of this country — our policies must reflect that.

Today we recognized South Bend Schools students committing to enter military service after high school. They deserve our thanks—and a commitment that this country take care of them, during and after their time in uniform.
