Pete Buttigieg's campaign published a list on Friday of individual donors who have raised at least $25,000 for his 2020 election effort.

Driving the news: Sen. Elizabeth Warren attacked the Indiana mayor last week for not disclosing those names. Buttigieg made another effort at transparency this week by releasing his full client list from when he worked at the high-powered and controversial consulting firm McKinsey & Company from 2007 to 2009.

Pete Buttigieg announced Monday that he received endorsements from more than 200 foreign policy and national security officials, per USA Today.

Why it matters: It's another way for the South Bend, Ind., mayor to take aim at Joe Biden as his list includes a diverse group of Obama administration alumni described as the "next generation of foreign policy leaders" by the Buttigieg campaign's foreign policy head.
