WATCH: NBC Says Mayor Pete ‘Boring,’ Can’t Win

Some politicos are casting doubt on the upstart mayor’s presidential bid.

A host of Today on NBC said that South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg likely cannot win the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.

“You don’t meet a lot of guys like Mayor Pete who last long on a national level, because, quite frankly, he’s kind of boring,” Craig Melvin said Wednesday. “We’ve seen this from time to time in our politics, there’s a man or a woman who manages to capture our attention and then they fizzle, they fade, they peter out. What’s different this time?”

Buttigieg has been the surprise of the Democratic Party field, surging nationally as the upstart candidate while most expected newcomer Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke to fill that role. O’Rourke has faltered from the beginning.

But as political heavyweight and former vice president Joe Biden enters the race, doubts about outsider candidates – and even some well-known Democrats who were expected to perform well – have arisen.

Buttigieg, though, remains optimistic.

“We are very mindful that vaulting into the top three is nice, but it doesn’t win you the election,” he recently said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do now that is the glamorous on-the-ground blocking and tackling and organizing, especially in the early states, that really carries you through to the nomination. And that’s going to be our focus. I think we’ve established that this is not a flash in the pan.”

The top four Democratic Party candidates in most of Wednesday’s major polls were Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), in that order.

Department of Justice Investigating After FBI Finds Nine Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots Discarded in Ditch – All for Donald Trump

Extremely suspicious.

The Department of Justice announced that it has begun an investigation into the destruction of nine mail-in ballots found in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

In a statement, the DOJ announced that the nine ballots had been found “discarded.” Seven ballots that were unsealed were all cast for Donald Trump, and two others were sealed, and remain unopened.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the suspicious ballot disposal.

A DOJ statement is describing the destroyed ballots as military ballots. Rules and procedures exist for military service members to cast votes in their home states when they’re stationed at installations across the country and overseas.

Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County. It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany brought up the concerning election interference in Thursday’s press conference, citing the incident as an example of why President Trump and many Americans are highly concerned about the novel use of national mail-in electioneering in 2020.

Pennsylvania is arguably the most crucial and closely contested state in the 2020 election. The outcome of the entire contest could very conceivably be decided by a few votes in the state.
