WASHINGTON (AP) — Pete Buttigieg says he raised $4 million since the Iowa caucuses, an impressive haul for a candidate looking to capitalize on his strong showing to continue building a national political brand.

The campaign of the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced Friday that it had collected $4 million since Tuesday.

The results from Monday's caucuses are too close for The Associated Press to call. In figures released by the state party, Buttigieg leads Bernie Sanders by 0.09 percentage points.

Democratic presidential candidates are debating for the first time since the Iowa caucuses. There are seven candidates on the stage Friday night in New Hampshire, ahead of Tuesday's primary in the state.

WASHINGTON (AP) — For Pete Buttigieg, an appearance before a gathering of the nation's mayors was a home game.

The former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was cheered by his former peers Thursday in Washington as he sought to generate goodwill and electoral support for his Democratic presidential bid.

Critics have derided the 38-year-old for having a limited resume, topped by his eight years running a city of about 100,000.

But at a time when many of his leading rivals are members of a gridlocked U.S. Senate, Buttigieg is trying to turn that into a strength.

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Pete Buttigieg finds himself in a place that he could hardly have contemplated when he began running for president a year ago: He likely cannot finish lower than second in the Iowa caucuses if he wants to advance in the Democratic presidential nominating campaign.

Each of the top four candidates within reach of the lead in Iowa faces his or her own version of the challenge.

But the 38-year-old former mayor of a midsize Midwestern city has a particularly high burden of proof in his bid to win the right to face President Donald Trump.
