The McKinsey & Co. consulting firm says it will allow Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg to identify the clients he served more than a decade ago.

The announcement comes the same day that Buttigieg pledged to open his fundraising events to the news media and provide the names of key fundraising organizers. 

The moves Monday reflect the growing pressure Buttigieg is under as his campaign gains traction in early voting states less than two months before the Democratic contest begins.

He's working to avoid losing his momentum as rivals, especially Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, step up their criticism of him.


Today the Buttigieg campaign issued the following statement.

South Bend, IN –– Today, Mike Schmuhl, campaign manager for Pete for America, released the following statement:

“In a continued commitment to transparency, we are announcing today that our campaign will open fundraisers to reporters, and will release the names of people raising money for our campaign. Fundraising events with Pete will be open to press beginning tomorrow, and a list of people raising money for the campaign will be released within the week.
