Mayor Pete is having a good couple of weeks…..first in Iowa then in New Hampshire and had a pretty good debate….but now he is getting more scrutiny than before.
Still early in the process but there is a saga being presented for Mayor Pete…Pro and Con……
Let’s start with the “Pro”…….
The begin with the source of this article is a conserv site that supports Trump mostly….take it for what it is…..
The Democratic primary has rapidly devolved into a bitter squabble between 78-year-old socialist Bernie Sanders and 78-year-old billionaire Michael Bloomberg. Former vice president and 77-year-old train enthusiast Joe Biden is also technically running. The self-described “party of the future” appears to be doing everything in its power to ensure a second term for President Donald J. Trump.
The most youthful Democrat with a realistic shot at the nomination is Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of Indiana’s fourth-largest city who won’t shut up about the time he studied abroad in Afghanistan. He’s riding high after strong finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire but is in for a rude awakening once the voting starts in states that aren’t dominated by his core demographic of wealthy whites with graduate degrees and West Wing fetishes.
Now for some anti Mayor Pete news……
This is from FOX News (do I need to tell your where their loyalties lie?)….and interview with Mayor Pete’s brother-in-law……
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg‘s brother-in-law, Pastor Rhyan Glezman, slammed the Democratic hopeful for his comments Tuesday night, when the candidate claimed he doesn’t see “any compatibility” between supporting President Trump and the teachings in Scripture after declaring that God “does not belong to a political party.”
“Yeah, in the height of intellectual dishonesty for Pete to make claims that there’s no compatibility with being a Christian and voting for Trump, [when] Pete, in fact, is the one who is pushing agendas and rhetoric that is against, clearly against Scripture,” Glezman said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight“
Neither of these stories do I agree with in any shape or form……all of it sounds more like oppo research for the Trump camp in the upcoming general election
After the Nevada vote Mayor Pete is acting like the spoiled child candidate….he lost but he will not go on until his little tantrum is over…..
Pete Buttigieg’s campaign has a few requests of a Nevada State Democratic Party “in light of material irregularities” in state caucuses still being tallied, CNN reports. The campaign asks the party to “release early vote and in-person vote totals by precinct,” “correct any outstanding second alignment errors identified by presidential campaigns,” and “explain anomalies in the data.” Team Buttigieg is the first to doubt the Nevada results that—with 60% of precincts counted—have Sen. Bernie Sanders ahead with a crushing 46%, followed by Joe Biden (19.6%), Buttigieg (15.3%), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (10.1%), and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (4.8%), per the New York Times.
So this is about challenging Biden for second rather than Sanders for first, as the Buttigieg letter makes clear. But does it hold any water? Politico notes there’s been talk of some precinct volunteers and voters getting confused about how Nevada’s early voting was included in individual precinct results. It was also the state caucuses’ first try at early voting, and nearly 75,000 took part. Meanwhile, state party official Molly Forgey has responded thusly to the Buttigieg letter: “We never indicated we would release a separate breakdown of early vote and in-person attendees by precinct and will not change our reporting process now,” she writes in part. “As laid out in our recount guidance, there is a formal method for requesting a challenge of results.”
You lost in Nevada just move on to South Carolina.
