Nevada caucuses live updates: Sanders wins, Buttigieg project challenges some outcomes

On Thursday, Reid sat down with The Washington Post for practically an hour to speak about lots of topics, consisting of handicapping where the race stands and what he thinks of Iowa and New Hampshire’s spot in the lineup.

Here’s what he needed to state:

PK: How did you evaluate Bloomberg’s performance?

HR: He didn’t do very well.

Was it a near-fatal efficiency?

End of the line? No, $450 million stops a line from ending.

What altered, why was she so bad in New Hampshire and so excellent in Las Vegas?

Somebody can be a really excellent baseball player, however they can have a series of bad games, that are simply terrible. She had a bad night. There’s no– I know Elizabeth really well– and there’s no chance you can rationalize it, her night was bad. And she placed on her A-suit last night and was actually strong.

What effect will Warren’s efficiency have on Saturday’s caucus?

The concern is, Nevada, we’ve had a lot early voting, people have actually currently voted, we have actually had 70,000 individuals vote already. So I do not understand what’s going to take place on Saturday … A lot of the vote has actually currently taken place before people saw the real Elizabeth Warrnen.

All the polls say yes, you can’t discover one that says contrary. But comprehend Bernie Sanders– you discuss Elizabeth Warren’s campaign, it’s been going for 8 or 9 months. Go through the list of individuals, and they’ve been campaigning for a little– he’s been campaigning for practically a years. That’s why in Nevada, he’s extremely well organized, he’s got a lot of people here.

Should candidates start leaving now?

We have to see what occurs on Super Tuesday, due to the fact that you have California, you have Texas, Massachusetts. That’s the big kahuna right there.

What happened to the campaigns of Kamala Harris and Cory Booker?

I am convinced that Iowa and New Hampshire are such a bad, bad setting. It is a shame that those 2 states set the tone for 48 states, and they should not. … 2 percent minority … I think that it’s a horrible place to begin.

Would either of them still be in the race if Nevada or some other varied states went?

I believe Kamala Harris– a lawyer general of a state with 50 million individuals– she could not get started in Iowa.
