Mayor Pete Buttigieg offered some campaign advice to billionaire Mike Bloomberg following his disastrous debate performance this week; saying Bernie Sanders will win the nomination should he continue his run for the White House.
“Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg‘s presidential campaign called on former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to drop out of the Democratic presidential primary race in a memo released on Thursday, warning that Bloomberg’s presence in the race would propel Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to the Democratic nomination,” reports The Hill.
“If Bloomberg remains in the race despite showing he can not offer a viable alternative to Bernie Sanders, he will propel Sanders to a seemingly insurmountable delegate lead siphoning votes away from Pete, the current leader in delegates,” Buttigieg’s campaign wrote.
“Bloomberg had the worst debate performance in presidential debate history and he showed he can’t handle Sanders, let alone Donald Trump,” the campaign wrote. “If Biden, Buttigieg, and Klobuchar remain in the race despite having no path to appreciably collecting delegates on Super Tuesday (and beyond), they will propel Sanders to a seemingly insurmountable delegate lead by siphoning votes away from [Bloomberg.”
