Template:For Pierre "Pete" Beauregard is an American political and environmental activist. He ran as a Democrat for the United States House of Representatives in the 2018 election for California's 50th congressional district against Duncan D. Hunter.
Beauregard is descended from a family of Acadians that includes the Confederate general of the same name. He graduated from Burbank High School in 1967 and enlisted in the United States Navy shortly thereafter. He served during the Vietnam War and experienced the loss of his best friend in battle. After returning to the US, he founded a free clinic in Huntington Beach, California, which provided family planning services in the era before Roe vs. Wade.
As an anti-war activist, Beauregard protested the 2003 invasion of Iraq and later joined the presidential campaign of Dennis Kucinich. An advocate of renewable energy, Beauregard lives in a zero-energy building that he built and has worked to bring solar power to the Navajo community. In addition, he uses his ranch to sequester carbon in the soil through sustainable agriculture techniques.
In July 2016, Beauregard served as a delegate for the Bernie Sanders campaign at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. In April 2017, he announced a run for Congress against Duncan Hunter in California's 50th District. On December 11, 2017, Beauregard suspended his campaign and endorsed Ammar Campa-Najjar to promote party unity.
