More than 1,600 people attended a rally for Democratic presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg in Des Moines, Iowa, on Tuesday after it was originally supposed to be a 50 person meet-and-greet.
The mayor of South Bend., Ind., garnered large crowds at his highly anticipated campaign stops following his official campaign launch amid a sudden rise in polls, the Quad-City Times
“To have vaulted into the higher tier as we have is really encouraging,” Buttigieg said. “But I also know that this is just the beginning. We have a lot of work to do.”
The candidate stopped at a standing-room-only town hall in Fort Dodge before attending the massive rally in Iowa’s capital of Des Moines.
Buttigieg, 37, is the first openly gay Democratic presidential candidate and married Chasten Buttigieg in June 2018.
