Former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has endorsed Rep. Andy Kim (D-Moorestown) for re-election to a second term.

“I’ve known Andy Kim for nearly two decades,” Buttigieg said.  “Well before either of us ran for office, we were friends who shared a belief that our country could grow more secure and more prosperous.”

The move is hardly surprising.

Kim and Buttigieg attended Oxford University together as Rhodes Scholars and Kim endorsed Buttigieg for president in February, after his home state favorite son, Cory Booker, dropped out of the race.

“Throughout our many years of friendship, I’ve always admired him for his commitment to serving our country and his ability to find solutions to our nation’s most pressing challenges,” the former South Bend mayor said.  “In Congress, Andy has worked daily to keep Americans safe and health care affordable, and his re-election will be good news for his district and our country alike.”
