SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – Thousands gathered as Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg made a campaign stop in Utah ahead of Super Tuesday.

Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, spoke at The Union Event Center in downtown Salt Lake City Monday evening.

The Buttigieg campaign says more than 4,500 attended the town hall event.

Utah is among the 14 states where voters will cast ballots March 3. The two contests before Super Tuesday are caucuses in Nevada on Saturday and a primary in South Carolina on Feb. 29.

Buttigieg has landed endorsements from several notable Utahns including District Attorney Sim Gill, Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson, Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall and former Salt Lake City mayor Ted Wilson.
