On Thursday, the editorial board argued the South Bend, Indiana mayor should disclose all clients he worked with during his time at management consulting firm McKinsey and Company.

"It is even more important that the candidates expose possible conflicts of interests right now, and that means, for example, that the mayor should be releasing who is on his finance committee", stated Democrat candidate Elizabeth Warren. "And he should open up the doors so that the press can follow the promises that he's making in these big-dollar fundraisers".

Buttigieg's progressive rivals - namely Sen.

The supporters for Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had rallied in his city on Wednesday night when they were interrupted by a protester in a "Black Lives Matter" shirt.

The Democratic presidential candidate worked at McKinsey for almost three years after college, and he's recently faced criticism that's he failed to be fully transparent about the nature of his work there.

Buttigieg says he hasn't released more information because he's under a non-disclosure agreement that he signed when he started his job at McKinsey.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg said Friday that although black Democrats were rallying around Joe Biden in states like SC, the former vice president did not have their best interests at heart.

Buttigieg was in New Hampshire for a two-day campaign visit.

Buttigieg acknowledged this struggle in the NHPR interview, saying that he believes one obstacle is that voters have felt "abused by the Republican party and sometimes taken for granted by the Democratic party" while others still don't know enough about him yet.
