Dems Turn on Buttigieg After Iowa Victory

Dems Turn on Buttigieg After Iowa Victory

( – Former mayor Pete Buttigieg looks to have won a shock victory in the Iowa caucus – but his fellow Democrats don’t seem too happy about it. In Friday’s Democrat debate, Buttigieg came under fire from all his fellow candidates except Andrew Yang, with Joe Biden, in particular, focusing on his inexperience of national politics.

Amy Klobuchar had similar criticisms. She said, “We have a newcomer in the White House, and look where it got us. I think having some experience is a good thing.”

In reference to a joking comment he made a couple of weeks ago, Klobuchar said Buttigieg would rather watch cartoons than do politics. The 38-year-old also faced criticism for allegedly changing his position on health care.

What does this mean for Buttigieg? With polls now suggesting he could beat out Biden in New Hampshire, the Dem heavyweights are running scared – so they’ll stop at nothing to destroy the upstart mayor before the contest goes much further.
