Bloomberg takes heat from primary rivals on Sunday political talk shows

The ‘Klomentum’ is built after Amy Klobuchar’s surprisingly good performance in New Hampshire- WCCO

The former NY mayor, who skipped the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary but has been trying to make up for it with huge spending on television ads, has faced increasingly sharp criticism, much of it over past positions and comments being criticised as crude, racist or misogynistic.

"He's going to have to answer for that and speak to it", the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., said on "Fox News Sunday". "Right now, this is our chance to do something different". I don't think you should be able to hide behind airwaves and huge ad buys. Every Democratic candidate pledged in September to grant government healthcare to illegal immigrants and return to accepting at least 110,000 refugees per year, while frontrunners Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have vowed to decriminalize illegal border crossing entirely.

Those early states, Iowa and New Hampshire, are small and predominantly white.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

Sanders and Buttigieg are in a neck-and-neck race, with the latter narrowly winning the most delegates so far. Buttigieg, Klobuchar and Steyer were the only 2020 candidates to attend.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota said the former three-term NY mayor, who has spent more than $300 million on campaign ads so far, must square off face-to-face with the other candidates.

Steyer, a billionaire businessman, replied, "I forgot".

With the Nevada caucuses less than a week away, Democratic presidential candidates campaigning Sunday were fixated on a rival who wasn't contesting the state.

However, while a statement like Klobuchar's may play well in Nevada, where around a third of residents are of Hispanic or Latino descent, it is a dramatic reversal of her own position a decade ago. Super Tuesday will be March 3.

Mr Biden assailed that approach on Sunday, saying of Bloomberg and his fortune, "Sixty billion can buy you a lot of advertising, but it can't erase your record".

Biden knocked Bloomberg's past support of stop-and-frisk policing policies and his comments suggesting cracking down on racist mortgage lending practices, known as "redlining", contributed to the financial crisis, as well as his 2008 refusal to endorse Barack Obama for president. Klobuchar reportedly gained about 10 percent support in polling in Nevada, according to The Hill.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) was asked, point-blank, what she thought of a report in The Washington Post that accuses former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg of "making crass remarks, objectifying women and creating a sexist culture in the workplace".

Still, the more intense scrutiny could slow his rise.

Ms Klobuchar told CNN that Bloomberg needs to address the allegations directly. I think he can not hide behind the airwaves and the money.
