Openly Gay Mayor Secures Enough Donors To Participate In First DNC Presidential Debate
Mayor Pete Buttigieg has hit his 65,000 donor goal, according to a press release.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) requires a minimum of 65,000 individual donors in order for a candidate to be invited to the debate stage happening in June.
A spokesman with the Pete for America Exploratory Committee says, “We are building a community that believes in this bold vision for the future, and there are tens of thousands of people (75,025 to be exact) around the country who invested because they believe a midwestern, millennial, war veteran, mayoral voice should be part of the conversation.”
Mayor Pete Buttigieg released this tweet on Saturday.
On Mar. 11, Buttigieg had the largest fundraising day of his potential 2020 campaign, exceeding $600,000 over 24 hours following CNN’s Town Hall.
