It’s finally heating up over in the Democratic primary after the Biden campaign got so desperate they slapped Buttigieg with a vicious campaign ad smackdown. It’s really worth watching:
Former Mayor Pete doesn’t think very highly of the Obama-Biden record. Let’s compare. pic.twitter.com/132TB7MHaq— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) February 8, 2020
Wow. The way they make Pete’s time as mayor into a joke is pretty devastating and very effective, I think. Of course, they’re completely inflating and exaggerating Biden’s role as VP, but that’s par for the course.
The Buttigieg campaign responded with this milquetoast statement:
The Buttigieg campaign has responded to this digital ad released by Fmr. VP Biden. “The Vice President’s decision to run this ad speaks more to where he currently stands in this race than it does about Pete’s perspective as a mayor and veteran,” the statement reads. https://t.co/sFjAKegOTv pic.twitter.com/0weK1J0YXs— Priscilla Thompson (@PriscillaWT) February 8, 2020
Dang. Are you people even trying to win?
Buttigieg is definitely getting a boost from the first two primary contests, but people expect that he’s going to get clobbered in South Carolina where there are way more African-American voters who completely back Biden… expect him to get vicious pretty soon as the desperation seeps into his campaign! So much fun!
