NH Rep. Annie Kuster endorsed Buttigieg.. There are 6 elected congressional Democrats to do so, and no Democratic governors, in IA and NH; 2 have endorsed Buttigieg and one, NH’s Shaheen, is pledging not to endorse anyone; the emerging “Sanders Scenario': wins Iowa, rides momentum to win NH, a state he carried in 2016. Bernie becomes NV's favorite, he concedes SC to Biden and instead takes his $90 million to Super Tuesday. Sanders powers up his delegate count in progressive states like CA, MA and CO; then off to the convention.
Former NH state party chair Kathy Sullivan wrote an op-ed for the New Hampshire Union-Leader. Sullivan argued that Sanders isn’t popular in NH; she credits his 2016 61% victory to “Clinton fatigue. I think the most obvious reason is that the results four years ago were not just driven by support of Sanders, but also by primary voters rejecting Hillary.”
