South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s veto of a zoning request from a pro-life, non-medical facility stands. In a packed room, which included both pro-life and pro-choice supporters, the city’s Common Council voted 5 to 4, missing the majority needed to override the veto.

The council cited five rezoning criteria they used to allow Women’s Care Center, a pro-life, non-medical facility to open an office next to Whole Women’s Health Alliance, which could soon become an abortion provider in South Bend.

A new grassroots movement based in Washington, DC hopes to encourage South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg to run in the 2020 presidential election.  

The movement has no association with Buttigieg or his campaign. Mark Meier lives in Washington DC, and launched the effort, despite never meeting the South Bend mayor. But, he says Buttigieg has a lot of the qualities the Democratic Party needs in a candidate. He said it all began when he read an article about the mayor.

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttitgieg said it’s going to be a while before the river falls back to normal.

“It’s going down slowly. We’re still going to be above 12 feet probably for the balance of the day and it will be the month of March before we’re out of flood stage.”
