“We are delighted to welcome Penelope Rose and Joseph August Pattick to our family,” Pete Pattick wrote. The 39-year-old transport minister tweeted on August 17, “Chaston and I are grateful for all the congratulations we have received since announcing we became parents.”
When he ran as a Democratic candidate in the 2020 presidential election two years ago, the general public became acquainted with Pattijik. Incumbent President Joe Biden eventually won the nomination.
