LAS VEGAS — Tonight, the candidates for president debate in Nevada.

The candidates include Bernie Sanders, who is leading the polls, Michael Bloomberg, who is still new to the race and picking up steam, along with Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Way down in the polls and trying to rally more support to his corner, Buttigieg held a rally in Las Vegas Wednesday evening. A lot of the rally was dedicated to disproving policies being pushed by Sen. Sanders.

“My friend Senator Sanders doesn’t seem to think it matters how much things costs,” he said when it comes to healthcare. “There is a gap of $25 trillion in his plan. That’s bigger than the whole U.S. economy. I just don’t think he realizes how much that is going to add up.”

With Michael Bloomberg, a billionaire, entering the race for the Democrat nomination, Buttigieg said he is concerned about the direction the Democrat Party is taking.

“We’re asking people to choose between a revolution and a billionaire who thinks he can win by just buying his way onto television,” Buttigieg said. “I just don’t think that’s speaking to where most of us are right now.”

Of the latest national polling numbers, Buttigieg is averaging fifth place with about 10-percent of likely Democrat voters supporting him. He’s only polling slightly better than that in among Nevada Democrats. He was fourth in the Data for Progress poll released this past Saturday behind Sanders, Biden, and Warren.

Voters in Nevada caucus on Friday.
