Buttigieg in Des Moines: 1,600 attend rally planned for 50 people


Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg's Tuesday night town hall in Des Moines, Iowa, was so packed, it was standing room only despite his expectations that only 50 people would turn up, the Quad City Times reports.

Details: More than 1,600 people turned out to hear the South Bend, Indiana, mayor speak at the rally inside the gymnasium of Franklin Junior High School. It's another sign interest in him is continuing to soar, despite being relatively unknown at a national level when he entered the race in January.

1. This is Pete's new reality

 

I believe this falls into the category of "good problems to have."

And this particular "problem" is only going to grow, I'm happy to say.

2. And that's because he has a certain "something" that can't be bought

 

I was I intrigued by Mayor Pete after just a 30 sec soundbite after his CNN Townhall. Then I watched his 1/2 hr segment on MJ that was so good he was getting lots more calls about appearances. The snowball is still rolling downhill for that one. He's one to watch, for sure.
