On this edition of Your Call, we’re kicking off a two-week series on the presidential candidates' record, policies, and donors. We start by talking about former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg. The 38-year-old is the first openly gay Democrat to run for President.
What does his record as mayor reveal and who benefited from his policies in South Bend, where the poverty rate remains high? He continues to face scrutiny from communities of color and groups working for criminal justice reform.
So far, his campaign has raised a whopping $75.4 million, according to OpenSecrets. Forty billionaires have donated to his campaign, according to Forbes. Who are his major donors?
