We just wanted to make sure you saw Pete’s note from earlier this week about Sunday’s CNN Town Hall.
Take a read and then find a watch party here:

This Sunday at 9:00 pm ET, I’m joining CNN for a town hall discussion from Austin, Texas.
At the same time, supporters all across the country are hosting watch parties to begin building community around our bold vision for the future.
Take a look to see if there’s a watch party in your community:
We have several goals for the weekend. I wanted to fill you in on them and provide concrete ways you can help.
First: I want to make you proud.
This one’s on me, and it’s sort of cheesy to say, but it’s true. I want to make you proud.
Whether you are on our Grassroots Fundraising Team, share things on social media, are a donor, have joined us in-person at an event in your community, or have told one person about our vision — I am so grateful.
I hope that I make you proud of the work you are doing, and that you’ll continue to be an enthusiastic member of our community.
Second: We need to expand our donor group.
This one we need to do together. We’ve said this here before but, the DNC announced that in order to be invited to the first candidate debate in June, we’ll need to have the support of 65,000 unique donors. We’re not quite there yet, and there’s no other way to say this: I need your help.
Third: We need to introduce new people to our bold vision.
The town hall will be the first time many people learn my name and hear about our bold vision for the future. It’s certainly going to help build awareness but we know that personal outreach is still the most effective thing when it comes to talking about politics and our values.
Will you share this on Facebook, and then text a friend who might need someone to prompt them to tune in? Here’s some copy to get you started:
Have you been following Pete Buttigieg? He recently launched a presidential exploratory committee and has a town hall with CNN on Sunday. I think you should tune in. It’s 9pm ET on CNN.
Thank you for your continued support. I’m grateful to be on this journey with you.
