Former Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg To Guest Host “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is coming to late-night TV and will host “Jimmy Kimmel Live” tonight, March 12. 

“We’re lining up a great slate of guests,” Buttigieg said. “Patrick Stewart is coming on, so we are very excited about that.” He also said that he hopes he’ll have some help penning the monologue that night, saying, “Hopefully some funnier minds than mine will be doing some writing for that. I think it is going to be fun. The thing about running a presidential campaign is you will have been focused on one thing and one thing only. It is nice to be able to zoom out and come back at life.”

Since dropping out of the presidential race on March 1, Buttigieg has been traveling the country with his husband. The former mayor of South Bend, Indiana said he is “going to have some fun” before pursuing his next job. Buttigieg has endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden to be the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee.
