Pete Buttigieg announced Monday that he received endorsements from more than 200 foreign policy and national security officials, per USA Today.
Why it matters: It's another way for the South Bend, Ind., mayor to take aim at Joe Biden as his list includes a diverse group of Obama administration alumni described as the "next generation of foreign policy leaders" by the Buttigieg campaign's foreign policy head.
- Buttigieg, who served in Afghanistan as a Navy intelligence officer, has faced skepticism about his foreign policy chops as mayor of the fourth-largest city in Indiana.
- Biden similarly released a number of top-level Obama administration foreign policy endorsements last month, per the Washington Post. He has also received the endorsement of former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry.
The big picture: Targeting Obama alumni for endorsements is a strategy that much of the wide Democratic field is pursuing in order to target Biden. Elizabeth Warren released her own list of 200+ Obama alumni endorsements last week.
