How Pete Buttigieg Makes His Money

3 min read

Pete Buttigieg’s 2018 income was the lowest of the 13 Democratic candidates who have released their tax returns. The South Bend, Indiana mayor’s tax returns show he and his husband, Chasten, brought in roughly $150,000 last year. Here’s how he makes his money.

Two dozen Democrats are vying for the middle-class vote in the 2020 election – but some candidates are facing skepticism for pitching themselves as champions of the middle class while having millions in the bank.

Former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, led the field by raking in $4.5 million, according to tax returns. Sen. Kamala Harris of California and her husband, Douglas Emhoff, followed with $1.9 million.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and her husband, Bruce Mann, took in $846,394. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and his wife, Jane, made $561,293.

Aside from the money Buttigieg earns as mayor and what his husband makes as a middle school teacher, the presidential hopeful has taken in extra cash from his book, “Shortest Way Home.” From the start of 2018 to May 2019, he took in $45,000 in advance and royalties payments for the book, which came out in February.

    Campaigns tend to last about 2 years, so anyone who is running for office needs to have 2 years worth of money put away. In other words, those who have money are more likely to be able to campaign.

    This guy represents people with a different agenda than GODs plan in the Bible in Genesis 1:28. This will be a huge defeat for the Christians community if this happens. All the things we Christians care about will be swiped away if this guy became president. Their agenda is to promote this new lifestyle that will completely destroy the way we thing about family. How can this guy champion family values when he has chosen a different lifestyle? I hope that many Christians will stand on the word of GOD and stop this madness in Jesus name Amen

    I know it sucks for Bernie's supporters to see that Pete is actually the poorest of all the candidate; that he has 130k in student loan, so let's blame MSNBC for the bad reporting.

    Why not rather tell us who is funding his campaign? How much he made last year does not matter much in the scheme of things.

    Very interesting. It’s a new perspective on our politicians for me.

    Should of asked him how is it he got super big dollars for his campaign and who are his biggest donors. There they go again CNBC leaving out Andrew Yang out of the conversation. MSNBC just did it again on 11-17-19 for the 15th time, at this point it's no accident. So what is it are they putting their finger on the scale to influence the primary election by leaving Yang out of the graphics. Or is it they are prejudice against Asian- Americans or a combination of both, because for it to happen 15 times it must be intentional. I'm no Fox News fan far from it, but here's their take on it. By the way, CNN has done the same about 5 times that I can remember.

    This is literally an ad for Buttigieg. Are you sure you’re unbiased, CNBC?

    Buttigieg is a coward that would be afraid to meet with a menacing enemy from a foreign country. He can’t fight. Tulsi has more heart to meet with our enemies. He’s a coward that couldn’t.

    Forget it bootleg. I don't think the country have sunk low enough yet to put a man and his husband in the white house.
