South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg says he is very close to meeting the requirements for the first DNC debate this year.
Buttigieg is required to at least get 1-percent support in three qualifying polls or have at least 65,000 donors. Of those donors at least 200 need to be from at least 20 states.
Mayor Buttigieg says he is 85-percent of the way there.
The first of six debates will be June.
