Before he was a candidate, Pete Buttigieg was voted 'most likely' to be president

He later added, "Up until recently this is not exactly what I had in mind for how I would spend my eighth year as mayor and 38th year in this world, but we live in a moment that compels us each to act."

Today 04:15 GMT

Defying NFL custom and at least temporarily creating a quarterback quandary, the Arizona Cardinals led off the NFL draft on Thursday night by selecting Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, the Heisman Trophy winner.

NFL teams simply don’t do that, but with a new coach in college-trained Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals made the bold move. For the second time in a year, Arizona went for a quarterback, having moved up from 15th overall to 10th in 2018 to grab Josh Rosen.
