This article focused on the plan that both Senator Elizabeth Warren and the first openly gay presidential candidate, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, released to the CNN town halls that are supposed to protect the rights of LGBTQ Americans. The article goes on to talk about the specifics of the plan, the legislation, executive actions, and the policies some advocates critique the plan on lacking. LGBTQ rights haven’t been a huge focus in the debates at this point of the political campaigns but some forums will be focusing on them as election time gets closer.
I thought this article was unnecessarily long. It was wordy and repeated itself in certain sections, especially sections where they would mention Buttigieg. And though it was long, the transitions were clear and smooth. They used phrases like “Warren was not the only candidate…” and “The plans don’t encompass all the reforms…” to prepare the reader for more information. Just, again, I just think that the re-introduction to Buttigieg in the section meant for advocates’ critiques made the article seem repetitive and ruined its flow.
