Joe Biden is attacking Pete Buttigieg following Monday’s caucuses. On Wednesday, Biden told voters Buttigieg is too inexperienced to be President of the United States. The former vice president then proceeded to list his own accomplishments from his time in the Obama administration.

Recent polls showed Biden in second place in New Hampshire, which will hold its primary on Tuesday. Biden added he took a “gut punch” in Iowa, but said he’s in the race for the long haul.
“I’m not going to sugar coat it, we took a gut punch in Iowa,” he said. “But look, this isn’t the first time in my life I’ve been knocked down.”
Iowa’s Democrat Party released additional results from the state’s caucus earlier in the day, which showed Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders leading the field. According to the latest data from 92 percent of the precincts, Buttigieg carried 26.5 percent of delegates vote. He was trailed closely by Bernie Sanders, who had 25.6 percent, and Elizabeth Warren, who held 18.3 percent.
