(FREE BEACON) — NBC Today co-host Craig Melvin said on Wednesday that he doesn’t predict South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg’s candidacy will go very far, calling him “kind of boring.”

“You don’t meet a lot of guys like Mayor Pete who last long on a national level, because, quite frankly, he’s kind of boring,” Melvin said during a panel discussion after playing a clip of his interview with Buttigieg in South Carolina.
