Joe Biden went missing in New Hampshire on Thursday as his ‘financially strapped’ campaign struggled to recover from his crushing loss in Iowa.
Biden came in 4th place in the Iowa caucuses and even with the Democrat establishment purposely delaying the results to shield him from the searing headlines, Biden’s camp is dying a slow death.
According to the Washington Post, Joe Biden spent most of Thursday at his home in Wilmington, Delaware huddling with his closest advisors trying to figure out a strategy moving forward.
Outside the castle-themed Radisson Hotel where Joe Biden has been staying, his campaign bus was parked and ready for events.
But on Thursday, just five days before the crucial primary here, the candidate was nowhere to be found.
Biden spent Thursday gathered with his top advisers at his home in Wilmington, Del., seeking a reset and perhaps a last-ditch effort to save his candidacy, beginning with a debate Friday night. He held no public events.
Following dismal results in the Iowa caucuses that have rattled many in his orbit, his campaign is now simultaneously trying to lower expectations here — with some suggesting they would consider a finish as low as third place a victory — while also bracing for a second straight difficult Election Day.
In one troublesome sign for the financially strapped campaign, it canceled nearly $150,000 in television ads in South Carolina, which votes Feb. 29, and moved the spending to Nevada, whose Feb. 22 contest follows New Hampshire’s. The move seemed to acknowledge that Biden’s campaign cannot sustain a continued run of bad news.
Politico reported earlier on Thursday that Biden’s camp had to ‘calm their donors’ after Biden’s abysmal Iowa numbers were revealed.
Biden is the Democrat establishment’s chosen candidate so they are trying to screw Bernie Sanders…AGAIN.
After claiming a “coding error” caused a delay in releasing the results of the Iowa caucuses, partial, fudged numbers were released showing Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders neck-and-neck.
Biden is in last place, but the delay allowed the results to be eclipsed by Trump’s acquittal on Wednesday.
The establishment is terrified of Bernie Sanders, a self-avowed Socialist, but it looks like Biden will barely be able to hang on if he can’t gain any momentum in the coming weeks.
