Warren Tears Into Buttigieg for ‘Wine Cave’ Donors


At last night’s sixth Democratic debate in Los Angeles, Sen. Elizabeth Warren attacked South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg for holding a closed-door fundraiser in what she called a “wine cave.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: “Billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the United States.”

Pete Buttigieg: “This is the problem with issuing purity tests you cannot yourself pass.”

Buttigieg’s event included a chandelier studded with 1,500 Swarovski crystals and $900 bottles of wine — items Senator Warren pointed out as being out of reach for the majority of Americans.
