Democratic presidential candidate South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg speaks during the Democratic primary debate hosted by NBC News at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts Thursday

Democrat Pete Buttigieg is following up his first presidential debate with a big fundraising weekend in NY, including an event with a group that has contributed millions of dollars to openly LGBT candidates and says it's planning "a historic special announcement".

He came under fire for his record on race relations, specifically his failure to integrate the police force in South Bend - a city where more than 1 in 4 residents is African-American but only 6% of the police force is - and handling of an officer-involved shooting of a black resident. In response, Buttigieg addressed the fatal June 16 police shooting of 54-year-old Eric Logan. Would he show up to the debate, or would he stay in South Bend?

On Saturday, Buttigieg will hold a fundraiser that's been billed as a "birthday bash" for his husband, who turned 30 on Sunday.

Buttigieg has previously attacked President Trump for "hypocrisy" when it comes to Christianity and, while he was once cordial with Vice President Mike Pence, he has used his sexuality to take a swipe at the former IN governor. The officer said he was attacked with a knife, but he didn't have his body camera on. It's a mess. And we're hurting... "He fired the last chief, and so I'm wondering why wouldn't he fire this chief", Swalwell said.

Afghanistan Vs Pakistan, Match Preview
Virat Kohli and his men have been dominant for the most part bar one clash against Afghanistan where they were given a scare. They have lost two matches in a row to Pakistan and Australia and need to beat England to be certain of making the last 4.

Buttigieg's campaign website says they are looking for a "Faith Engagement Director" to join the team.

Pete Buttigieg has been the early darling of the 2020 Democratic presidential contest.

IUSB alum Ben Fager said he supports Buttigieg for taking time off his campaign to try and do things right in South Bend.

Also participating in this debate were former vice-president Joe Biden, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
