CAMPAIGN 2020: Pete Buttigieg BOOED after knocking Bernie Sanders at New Hampshire Democratic event

At the 61st Annual McIntyre-Shaheen 100 Club Dinner in Manchester, New Hampshire, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg received a harsh reaction to knocks against Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.

This 9 February 2020 video from the USA says about itself:

What is the Buttigieg campaign’s biggest weakness? It might have something to do with wine caves & campaign finance. John Iadarola and Alex Sammon break it down on The Damage Report.

“It took almost 23 hours of Democratic debates, across six months and 20-plus candidates, for the first real punch to land.

“Most of the people on this stage run a traditional campaign. And that means going back and forth from coast to coast to rich people,” began Elizabeth Warren in Los Angeles in late December. “So the mayor [Pete Buttigieg, of South Bend, Indiana] just recently had a fundraiser that was held in a wine cave full of crystals and served $900-a-bottle wine … We made the decision many years ago that rich people in smoke-filled rooms would not pick the next president of the United States. Billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the United States.”

The audience burst into applause. The debate circuit, which has been such a maddening display of shadowboxing and mutual non-engagement that it’s been hard to differentiate the candidates, had finally stumbled upon a substantive disagreement.

Buttigieg responded to Warren. “We need the support from everybody who is committed to helping us defeat Donald Trump. So to denounce the same kind of fundraising guidelines that President Obama went by, that Speaker Pelosi goes by, that you yourself went by until not long ago, in order to build the Democratic Party and build a campaign ready for the fight of our lives, these purity tests shrink the stakes of the most important election.”

Then Bernie Sanders interceded, pointing out that former Vice President Joe Biden “received contributions from 44 billionaires” during the campaign, while Buttigieg “only got 39 billionaires.” Biden demurred, insisting that said billionaires only provided the maximum $2,800 donation. … The absentee mega-billionaire floating over the exchange, Mike Bloomberg, was unavailable for comment.”
