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.
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.
