Buttigieg meets with Hillary Clinton
By Amie Parnes - 05/01/19 02:13 PM EDT


Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg sat down with Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, sources tell The Hill.

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., who has been recently surging in the polls, requested the meeting, the sources say.

He's the latest 2020 contender to meet with Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee, as she offers advice on what she learned from her race. Others who have met with her include Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

“She has a lot to share and is happy to give advice to the 2020 candidates,” one Clinton ally said.

The former secretary of State met with Buttigieg at her office in New York, a source said.

Clinton has not endorsed anyone in the race and her allies don’t expect an endorsement to come until at least the end of the primary.

The development follows reports that Buttigieg has gained the support of several top fundraisers who worked for Clinton during her presidential bid. Among them was Steve Elmendorf, who bundled more than $100,000 for her in 2016.

I don't know him of course, but considering that the Obama/Biden administration stood down (in my opinion) on letting the public know about Russian interference, and that Biden went on record saying that if he'd been the candidate, he would have beaten Trump, I wouldn't blame her if she was a bit frosty towards him.

She seems to be remarkably able to not seem to hold grudges, though!
