A canvass event for Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was held Sunday afternoon in multiple locations across North Carolina.

The Super Tuesday primary is less than two weeks away, and campaign efforts are ramping up all over the nation.
Super Tuesday is an early election day in the United States presidential primary race.
It’s also a time where a presidential candidate can win the most delegates over any other campaign day.
The Super Tuesday states of 2020 are Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia.
All of these states will hold their Super Tuesday presidential primaries on March 3rd.
Buttigieg lost to Bernie Sanders in Nevada at the democratic caucus on the 22nd.
Sanders, coming off a victory in New Hampshire and a lead in the popular vote in Iowa, dominated with several key demographics.
CBS News reports Sanders had a big lead among voters under 45 and Latino voters, with more than 50% support. CBS News also said the Democratic candidate won 49% support from both independent and far left voters.
Currently, Buttigieg has over 2,000 volunteers working on his campaign, with over 400 events attempting to gain votes for the former Mayor of South Bend.
