Butt Hugger Pete Buttigieg exits Presidential Clowns Race ahead of Super Tuesday.
Butt Hugger Pete Buttigieg told supporters he’s ending his Clown Campaign on Sunday in an abrupt and surprising pullout that further narrows the field of DemoRats less than a month after he declared victory in the contested Iowa caucuses.
Butt Hugger Buttigieg had been scheduled to headline a rally in Dallas on Sunday night. The charter plane has been rerouted to South Bend, Ind., where Butt Hugger Buttigieg will announce that he is dropping out.
Butt Hugger Buttigieg’s withdrawal comes just days before 14 states are set to head to the polls on Super Tuesday, where one-third of all Clowns for the nomination will be at stake. His exit likely will harm frontrunner Crazy Communist Bernie Sanders by providing a coalescing boost to more moderate Clowns, as Butt Hugger Buttigieg had gone on the offensive against the Vermont Clown and sought to appeal to the centrist base of the party.
A senior campaign Clown said the decision was “absolutely not” because of Butt Hugger Buttigieg’s failure to reach his Super Tuesday fundraising goal of $13 million. The Clown Campaign announced Sunday that it needed another $1.6 million to reach that target.
