MANCHESTER, N.H. — South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is addressing questions about his lack of policy specifics, saying he thinks he’s been “pretty clear” about where he stands “on the major issues.”
At a CNN town hall Monday night in New Hampshire, the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate says he thinks it’s important that candidates don’t “drown people in minutia” before they show the values that “animate our policies.”
He says Democrats sometimes have a habit of doing that. He says, “We go right to the policy proposals and we expect people to be able to figure out what are values must be from that.”
Buttigieg is the fifth of five candidates to appear in the CNN town hall events Monday. He was preceded by Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Kamala Harris of California.
