Rich Weissman, director of The Richard Norris Weissman Charitable Fund, and his husband, J.D. hosted about 200 people at their Palm Springs home on Oct. 20, for the kick-off of the PS for Pete campaign. Mayor Pro Tem Geoff Kors and Councilmember Lisa Middleton were both in attendance and encouraged us to work hard on this campaign, Weissman said.

The fundraiser is the latest in a growing momentum for Buttigieg in the Coachella Valley. Hundreds of the presidential candidate’s supporters are walking in the Gay Pride Parade on Sunday, Nov. 3. Walkers are coming from Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and beyond.

According to the New York Times, A recent Suffolk University/USA Today poll of likely Iowa Democratic caucusgoers showed Buttigieg alone in third place, at 13 percent support. That put him just a few points behind Vice President Joe Biden, polling at 18 percent, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, at 17 percent.
