Pete Buttigieg, the small-town Indiana mayor who finds himself among the leading Democrats running for president, continued to take jabs at former Vice President Joe Biden, saying in an interview published Monday that he would not want to see his own son serving on the board of a Ukrainian company while he led anti-corruption efforts in the country.
Buttigieg made the comment during a wide-ranging interview with the Associated Press. The two candidates are seen by many voters as the leading moderates in the Democrat field.
The South Bend, Ind., mayor said he would “do everything we can to prevent even the appearance of a conflict. That’s very important because as we see it can create a lot of complications even when there is no wrongdoing.”
He insisted that the issues raised about Hunter Biden and his father by Trump are diversionary tactics.
It remains to be seen how damaging Ukraine will be for Biden, but the issue has been raised on the campaign trail. On Sunday, hecklers in Milford, N.H., started chanting “quid pro Joe.”
The Biden campaign declined to comment about Buttigieg’s remarks when reached by the AP. The office did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. Buttigieg has repeatedly stressed that Biden is not a target in the impeachment proceedings.
