On Sunday morning Pete Buttigieg appeared on Meet the Press to talk about his strategy going into Super Tuesday. By the end of the day he had dropped out of the race. We talk to two reporters (WVPE's Jennifer Weingart and Jeff Parrott of the South Bend Tribune) who have covered Buttigieg to find out how his supporters are reacting, and how his experience as mayor of South Bend had an impact on his campaign.

We also talk to a public health expert to get an update on the coronavirus, and to help us identify misinformation about the outbreak.
