Pete Buttigieg’s campaign is planning a Seattle-area rally of its own for March 6th

IMPORTANT UPDATE (MARCH 1ST, 2020): Pete Buttigieg has sus­pend­ed his pres­i­den­tial cam­paign as of March 1st, 2020. The planned event in Seat­tle described in this post will there­fore not take place.

ORIGINAL POST: 

In the past two weeks, Bernie Sanders and Eliz­a­beth War­ren have both orga­nized mar­quee cam­paign ral­lies in the Seat­tle area to bol­ster their cam­paigns ahead of Wash­ing­ton’s March 10th pres­i­den­tial pri­ma­ry.

Now Pete Buttigieg’s cam­paign wants to get in on the action.

They’re plan­ning a pub­lic ral­ly on the evening of March 6th, the night before the Wash­ing­ton State Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty’s Mag­nu­son Awards Din­ner.

This will be Buttigieg’s first pub­lic ral­ly in the state. Pre­vi­ous events in the area have all been fundrais­ers that cost mon­ey to get into. Buttigieg had one fundrais­er in July, fol­lowed by anoth­er in Decem­ber and a third a few days ago.

The ral­ly is open to the pub­lic and there is no cost to attend. How­ev­er, the loca­tion of the ral­ly is unknown, as the venue is appar­ent­ly not con­firmed yet.

Fri­day, March 6th
Speak­ing pro­gram start time unknown
Ral­ly in Wash­ing­ton with Pete Buttigieg
Venue unknown at this time

Doors will open at 7:30 PM. The speak­ing pro­gram will begin some point after that. Entrance will be pro­vid­ed on a first-come, first-served basis.

You may RSVP using this link.

When we get more details about the event, we will update this post.

The Wash­ing­ton State Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty has not unveiled its line­up yet for the Mag­nu­son Awards Din­ner, but we know that Buttigieg is plan­ning to be in Boise on the after­noon of Sat­ur­day, March 7th, because he has a ral­ly planned at 3:15 PM Moun­tain Time. To par­tic­i­pate in the Mag­nu­son Awards Din­ner, he would need to return to Seat­tle. It takes about an hour and a half to trav­el between Wash­ing­ton and Ida­ho’s largest cities by air, not count­ing time spent on the ground.

POSTSCRIPT: We promised we’d update this post when we got more details about this event. But with Pete Buttigieg hav­ing sus­pend­ed his pres­i­den­tial cam­paign as of Sun­day, March 1st, this event is no longer a go.
