Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders took a swipe at rival Pete Buttigieg's "wine cave" fundraiser during his 2020 Democratic presidential primary campaign.

"Our campaign has received more contributions from more people than any candidate in the history of the United States of America," Sanders told the crowd.

The socialist Vermont senator highlighted a line used by another 2020 Democrat, Elizabeth Warren, at the party's Thursday debate.

"We don't have a super PAC," Sanders said.

"We don't want a super PAC. We don't go to rich people's wine caves," Sanders quipped.

Sanders is currently holding ground against opponents like Buttigieg, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Warren.

Despite suffering a heart attack two months ago, Sanders is poled at 19.3%, in second place behind Biden's 27.8%, according to RealClearPolitics.

On Saturday, Sanders touted some of his key policy proposals.

"We're going to take on the Republican Party. We're going to take on the Democratic establishment," Sanders said.

"This status quo is not working."

Last month, former President Barack Obama reportedly warned he would 'step in' if the Democrats nominated Sanders.

According to Politico, Obama has said in private he'd speak out against Sanders if it looked like he could actually win.

"Back when Sanders seemed like more of a threat than he does now, Obama said privately that if Bernie were running away with the nomination, Obama would speak up to stop him," the report says.

But the former president has stated that he would get behind the Democratic nominee regardless of who it was, according to Obama spokesperson.
