BUTTIGIEG: You know, according to Forbes Magazine I am the literally the only person on this stage who is not a millionaire or a billionaire.
So if–this is important. This is the problem with issuing purity tests you cannot yourself pass.
If I pledge, if I pledge never to be in the company of a progressive Democratic donor I couldn’t be up here. Senator, your net worth is 100 times mine. Now supposing that you went home feeling the holiday spirit, I know this isn’t likely but stay with me–and decided to go onto peteforamerica.com, and give the maximum allowable by law, $2800. Would that pollute my campaign because it came from a wealthy person?
No. I would be glad to have that support. We need the support from everybody who is committed to helping us defeat Donald Trump.
