BROWN: "I think that’s what Pete’s strength is, building coalitions. Even if you look at what he’s done in South Bend. Being a mayor of a city is a tough job. He worked with a coalition, diverse coalition to address housing issues. He reduced unemployment in the African-American community by 70%, poverty in the African-American comment in South Bend by 40%, and he does it because he listens, he brings people together around difficult problems and challenges to find solutions that works for everyone. I think when he takes that experience, eight years as a mayor and he couples that with forward-looking vision he’ll be very attractive to the African-American community as he becomes more famine our community."
