WASHINGTON – Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg defended his electability in an interview with NBC’s “Today” show Tuesday as voters cast their ballots in New Hampshire’s primary election.

Polls have consistently shown Buttigieg with little backing among African-Americans, a group whose support former Vice President Joe Biden has touted as evidence he is best suited to become the nominee of a party that prides itself on diversity.

But Buttigieg argued that a good performance in New Hampshire, on the heels of his apparent win in the Iowa caucuses – The Associated Press has still not called that race – will give him a boost with minority voters.

“Voters of color who are laser focused on defeating this president, more than anything else, want to know that you can actually win,” Buttigieg said. He said the positive results from the first two contests have given his campaign “the look that we now need as we will travel directly to states like Nevada, South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states that have a lot of racial diversity and where we can make that case eye-to-eye.”
