FRESNO, Calif. - Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg (BOO'-tuh-juhj) says he would not have pressured Democrat Al Franken to resign from the Senate at the time some of his 2020 rivals did.

Buttigieg was asked about Franken at an MSNBC town hall Monday. Several of his Democratic presidential rivals had pushed for Franken's resignation following sexual harassment allegations, including forcible kissing and groping. He resigned under pressure in late 2017.
