CORRECTION: Earlier today we posted that Bernie Sanders did not comment directly on Pete’s historic campaign ending. Sanders did indeed comment on Twitter and tried to entice Buttigieg’s supporters to join his campaign. All in the same post.

  1. So why didn’t they lavish praises when he was a viable candidate? Especially those who had already dropped out?

  2. Seems as tho Bernie is already trying to recruit Pete’s supporters even before Pete’s campaign is cold. Just another reason to wish Bernie would just go away…but to be clear, if he IS the nominee I’ll vote for him against lil donnie…I’ll throw up a little in my mouth but I will vote for him.
