‘He’s a corporate clown’ – Sanders’ supporters welcome Buttigieg’s withdrawal from 2020 race

Supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders welcomed news of Sanders rival, Pete Buttigieg, dropping out of the 2020 race for the White House Sunday (March 1).

“He’s a corporate clown, and I think he was just an artificial cardboard candidate that was propped up by just the neo-liberal corporate establishment,” Sanders supporter Nevin Kohler told Reuters after attending a Sanders rally in San Jose, California. At the packed afternoon rally, Sanders positioned himself as the best candidate to defeat President Donald Trump, a day after losing the South Carolina primary to rival Joe Biden.

Buttigieg’s departure shook up the Democratic contest to pick a candidate to take on Republican President Donald Trump in November’s election and comes two days before the 14-state Super Tuesday nominating contests that will offer the biggest electoral prize so far.

Buttigieg, a 38-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who gained early momentum after he narrowly won the Iowa caucuses last month and finished a close second in New Hampshire, had sought to unite Democrats, independents and moderate Republican voters. He finished fourth in South Carolina.
