Democrat and 2020 hopeful Pete Buttigieg spoke with Hugh Hewitt on Friday, and said that renaming things named after Thomas Jefferson is the "right thing to do."

In Buttigieg's native Indiana, the traditional, annual Democrat fundraiser had the name changed from Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner (named for the party's founders) to the Hoosier Hospitality Dinner, for the sake of "inclusiveness." Changing the name is also being considered by other states.
