Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., and a Democratic candidate for president, is greeted by supporters at a rally in Nashua, N.H., on Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020. New Hampshire's presidential primary is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 11.

DOVER, N.H. - Pete Buttigieg spent Sunday on defense as his Democratic presidential rivals attacked him on everything from his struggle to connect with black voters to accepting campaign contributions from large donors in an effort to blunt any momentum heading into Tuesday's New Hampshire primary.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who essentially tied with Buttigieg in last week's Iowa caucuses, blasted the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for taking contributions from the very wealthy, suggesting Buttigieg won't stand up to "Wall Street tycoons" or "the corporate elite." Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren voiced similar criticism, telling ABC's "This Week" that "the coalition of billionaires is not exactly what's going to carry us over the top." Former Vice President Joe Biden told the same program that Buttigieg hasn't been able to "unify the black community."
