NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) -Joining several other Democrats targeting black voters this weekend with economic proposals, presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg released a policy on Sunday aimed at helping minorities start businesses.
Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced the proposal at Essence Festival, a gathering of thousands of black women organized by Essence magazine. On Saturday, six of his rivals also spoke at the festival.
