Mayor Pete also challenges the Mike Pence of the world that if they had a problem on who he is, their quarrel is beyond his pay grade, as he said during his Victory fund speech, if there is a pill that can make him not gay, he will take it even before he sips that water. He was thankful that there was no pill. In all his interviews he emphasized the importance that his marriage had on him, it shaped his life. He has major challenges ahead of him, communicating his message to the black voters and winning the Hispanic votes.
