"Well, I think ... that it’s naive for him to think that at this point, that the fate of this election has been determined," she said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "Just look at history. You might need to review to know that what’s happening right now is not necessarily determinative of the outcome."

Harris’s comments come after Buttigieg told John Heilemann that the race is shaping up to be a "two-way" between him and Warren an interview scheduled to air on Showtime Sunday.

“I think this is getting to be a two-way,” Buttigieg said. “It’s early to say. I’m not saying it is a two-way.”

Buttigieg responded to Harris's comments Sunday by telling The New York Times that "she's right," adding that the Iowa caucuses "are just the beginning."
