Buttigieg pulls in voters before New Hampshire primary

LONDONDERRY, N.H. – Pete Buttigieg has been busy with potential voters in New Hampshire just days before the primary on Tuesday.

On Sunday, Buttigieg stopped at five locations across New Hampshire in an attempt to reach voters.

He has slowly been rising to the top in the Granite State after his impressive run in Iowa.

A new tracking poll updated by the Boston Globe shows Buttigieg nearly tying with Bernie Sanders, with Buttigieg at 22 percent and Sanders claiming the top spot at 24 percent after initially falling behind the former Mayor on Friday.

Senator Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden continue to stay steady with 13 percent and 10 percent of the vote respectfully.

With close competition, candidates continue to exchange remarks to one another as they vie for the top spot in New Hampshire.

Buttigieg responded on Sunday to Sanders claims that Buttigieg is taking too many campaign donations from billionaires and pharmaceutical executives.

"Trump and his allies are doing everything they can to hold onto power. They raised $25 million in one day! And if somebody wants to donate to a campaign, especially if they know that I'm gonna raise their taxes and they're going to donate anyway? Fine. We need to accept and encourage help from everybody who is part of this cause. And by the way, I rely very heavily on grassroots donation, people contributing through Pete for America.com by the hundreds of thousands,” Buttigieg said.

Buttigieg’s last stop of Sunday is the town hall at Londonderry High School.

His campaign reports that around 1,800 voters showed up to the town hall in Nashua beforehand, as they anticipate a high turnout at the final town hall of the day.
