The limited space inside the Studebaker building meant that hundreds of Buttigieg supporters were left out in the cold and were unable to be inside when the presidential announcement was made.
Prior to addressing the crowd inside, Buttigieg went out in the rain with his husband, Chasten, and spoke to those disappointed about being unable to get inside for the official announcement.
Buttigieg told those assembled outdoors who huddled under umbrellas and ponchos, "I am impressed by all those inside, but I am moved by those of you outside."
The campaign says the South Bend Fire Marshal put the indoor crowd count at 4,526 and the outdoor crowd count at more than 1,500.
