Buttigieg in New Hampshire
In a speech that addressed issues including climate change, national security, gun control and health care, Buttigieg touched on topics common to communities in and around Claremont, including the opioid crisis and agriculture.
“We need to make sure every American understands where they fit,” in fighting the climate crisis, he said. “I’m calling for farmers to be part of the solution.”
That statement drew loud applause from the audience and resonated with David Casciani, a former dairy worker and entrepreneur from Claremont. Casciani voted for Trump in 2016 but has since switched his party affiliation so that he can vote for Buttigieg in the primary.
“He speaks to real issues, and he can give me a straight answer,” he said.
