'Buttegeig Has Courted Them All - Successfully'

Let's take a look at who Buttegeig owes some favors to.

The Buttigieg campaign announced on Monday that he had collected $24.8 million for the three-month period ending Sunday.

That's a lot of favors.
On Friday the Buttigieg campaign announced it will no longer accept donations from federal lobbyists, registered lobbyists, corporate PACs or money from the fossil fuel industry.

So who would Buttegeig accept $$ from and how will it affect his positions?

June 28, the LGBTQ Victory Fund announced their endorsement of Buttegeig.

'The endorsement will provide a financial boost for Buttigieg heading into Sunday’s second quarter fundraising deadline. The group gave $2 million to candidates in 2018. The Victory Fund will mobilize its network of supporters to help elect Buttigieg.'
Who are the Victory Fund's network of supporters?

Let's start by taking a look at their Board of Directors.

Well, look at this!

The President of Voices for Progress sits on the Victory Fund BOD.
Who is Voices for Progress?

Voices for Progress galvanizes the advocacy of business leaders, entrepreneurs, philanthropists & other prominent individuals who unite to protect climate, strengthen our democracy & ensure economic and social justice for all

So Voices For Progress are a bunch of 'social justice' warriors.

And who funds Voices For Progress?

Voices for Progress is funded by the Advocacy Fund which is affiliated with the Tides Foundation.

And WHO funds the Tide Foundation?

George Soros is a major donor, among others.

Tides Foundation is one of the left's leading dark money groups.

Fun Fact: 2 of the main financiers of the Alliance for Global Justice are also financed by Soros through the Open Society Foundations and the Tides Foundation.

Alliance for Global Justice funds groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
So, I wonder how this dark money that Buttegeig is likely receiving would affect his stance on police officers against groups like Antifa and BLM?

The 'part-time' mayor of South Bend Indiana took time off from the campaign to acquiesce to BLM members after a white police officer shot and killed a black man who was approaching the officer with a knife and refused to drop the weapon after repeated warnings.
How will this incident & Buttigieg's weak stance embolden local Antifa chapters?

Was an emboldened Antifa part of the plan?

We'll see how Buttigieg handles this powder keg waiting to blow in his home town.

With all those donations he owes the wrong people some favors.
UPDATE: Buttigieg warned Black Americans of a new civil war if the federal govt failed to end racist institutions & pay reparations for slavery

Buttigieg addressed the need to tackle systemic racism within the nation's police, in a Chicago speech Tuesday
