DETROIT (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg’s campaign pledged on Monday to increase transparency over donors to his White House bid and disclose clients he worked for as a young consultant, following criticism from rival Elizabeth Warren.

Warren, who has focused her presidential campaign on combating Washington corruption, in recent days has called on Buttigieg to allow media coverage of his private fundraising events and to disclose details about his past work at the consultancy company McKinsey.

Buttigieg’s fundraising events will be opened to the press beginning on Tuesday and a list of campaign fundraisers will be released within the week, his campaign manager, Mike Schmuhl, said in a statement.

Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, are among 15 candidates vying for the Democratic nomination to face Republican President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.

On Friday, Buttigieg called on McKinsey to release him from a confidentiality agreement about his work there spanning four years before he entered politics.
