Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar: The pair of Midwestern pragmatists are betting they can rise by speaking to an unsatisfied slice of the electorate: voters who believe Elizabeth Warren is too far to the left, but think Joe Biden is yesterday’s news.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2019-10-21/midwestern-moderates-buttigieg-and-klobuchar-try-to-rise-in-democrats-2020-presidential-race 

Buttigieg has been building a robust campaign infrastructure — and raking in piles of campaign cash.

At last week's debate, he also grabbed the spotlight with an aggressive challenge to Warren.  https://lat.ms/31EyX1e
