Pete Buttigieg is not the most high profile Democrat in the 2020 race, but don’t tell him that. In fact, he believes that the race is already in between him and just one other candidate – Elizabeth Warren.
Of course, the other Democrats polling above Mayor Pete – Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders come to mind – probably aren’t too happy with the comment.
After all, it’s a little hard to believe that Buttigieg is even in the top tier of candidates if the polling is to be believed. But when did reality ever matter to a Democrat candidate?

This will certainly be interesting to watch. Buttigieg has already walked back the comments, but don’t be surprised if his followers hype them up secretly.
It’s not as if the candidates above him are anything to write home about.
