Buttigieg calls on Nevada for support in upcoming caucuses

Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg called for “empowerment and unification” among the American people on Sunday (February 16) as he rallied support in Las Vegas just a week ahead of Nevada’s caucus.

Buttigieg comes into the Nevada contest after strong showings in Iowa and New Hampshire. 

Following the New Hampshire primary, the Buttigieg campaign said it intended to double its organizing staff in Nevada to 100. Buttigieg also launched a television ad in the state emphasizing his healthcare proposal that would provide access to a government-run Medicare plan but let people keep their private insurance if they want. 

Buttigieg, who would be the first openly gay U.S. president if elected, still faces questions about what opinion polls show is his weakness with black voters, one of the most loyal and vital Democratic voting blocs.
