Think about it: Mike Bloomberg wasn’t on the ballot Tuesday night for New Hampshire’s Democratic primary, but in the small town of Dixville Notch, he did win three write-in votes, besting both Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders. Is this a sign of momentum? Jim Messina, President Obama’s deputy chief of staff, thinks that Bloomberg might have been the big winner Tuesday night.
How, since he wasn’t on the ballot? Because “moderates” like Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar (but not Joe Biden) made strong showings, paving the path for Bloomberg to waltz in and take it all.
On MSNBC, Jim Messina concludes that because a lot of NH voters backed moderate candidates, "the big winner last night could be Mayor Bloomberg." pic.twitter.com/FYjwLphbuf

add 'winner' to the list of words that no longer mean what the dictionary says they mean.

The real winner is all the friends we made along the way.

I got the same number of delegates in NH as Bloomberg did

I got zero delegates in New Hampshire. I won too! I like this new math!

“A lot of NH voters backed moderate candidates”, but a far-Left lunatic socialist won. OK.

Bernie won. How is that "moderate"?

Pretty sure the winner was Bernie but it’s amazing how few people want to admit that.

How is Bernie moderate?

Moderate candidates? Who among the top four are moderate? BTW, define moderate.

Always nice to see the MSM reviving the political corpse that is Jim Messina. Cuz evidently there's no electoral death too gory to disqualify a white, male neolib opinion.
Messina and David Brock should start a podcast. Maybe Mike Bloomberg will fund it. https://t.co/oA7RVG38BG

Maybe Bloomberg could dive into his Scrooge McDuck money vault and buy Jim a clue.

Always nice to hear the opinion of someone who has made a career out of being publicly wrong on pretty much everything. Do better @MSNBC.

Michael Bloomberg gets pretty creative trying to talk his way out of responsibility for his 2015 stop-and-frisk comments https://t.co/9JcRbu5MBA
