The Democratic Establishment Strikes Back
The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.
After 3 attempts, 32 years, and 5 primaries as a candidate, Joe Biden finally won his first set of delegates in his quest to be the Democratic Party’s nominee for president. Within hours, the powers that be in the liberal establishment saw their opening and pounced on the remaining candidates, applying pressure to get them to drop out and support Biden.
With no clear path to the nomination for anyone, thanks largely to the screwed up way in which Democrats distribute their delegates proportionally, rather than fight, Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg took whatever they were offered as payoff and quit.
