“It is a little strange because I think I share the same values and goals of a lot of these people," the Democratic candidate told journalist Robert Costa at a Washington Post Live event.
The mayor's campaign has come under scrutiny for holding high-dollar fundraisers and announced on Monday that the events would be open to reporters and the names of campaign bundlers would be disclosed amid growing pressure from progressives over transparency.
Buttigieg held a number of fundraisers in New York City this week, including at the homes of tech investor Kevin Ryan and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
Buttigieg and his campaign have touted his campaign's grassroots support in the face of the scrutiny, noting that it has raised nearly $2 million in donations from over 700,000 individuals through the primary season.
