Pete Buttigieg recently visited with his supporters in New Hampshire. The former South Bend, Indiana mayor shook hands and posed for photos with voters as they waited in line at a polling place in Manchester on Tuesday.

Some of those supporters, who braved the snow and cold, were chanting “President Pete!” Other supporters noted the campaign has been a pleasant one because New Hampshire voters are really invested in the process.

“I love how all the voters, all the doors we knock on,” said New Hampshire voter Chris Stevens. “People are really invested and interested, and they try to learn what the candidates, their specific candidates, stand for.”

Buttigieg headed into Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary with some momentum for his campaign after winning last week’s Iowa Democrat caucus. He barely beat out Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.).

“We’ll have an ambassador here before too long. All of these things I hope you will see as a good faith effort to truly engage politically, diplomatically. Our team will work tirelessly to help engage economically as well.” – Mike Pompeo, U.S. Secretary of State

He went on to say he is confident the U.S. and Belarus can make real progress.
