Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has released two additional tax returns from his time working at consulting firm McKinsey.

The documents released hours before Wednesday’s debate show he made $80,397 in 2007 and $122,680 in 2008. He previously released his 2009 to 2018 returns.

Buttigieg hasn’t described his work with McKinsey in depth, saying he is bound by a confidentiality agreement. He said this month that he would ask about getting the agreement released.

A campaign spokesman says they made that request.

Buttigieg worked for McKinsey as a consultant for about three years before being elected mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Among the details he has disclosed is that he studied grocery pricing. His mother told the South Bend Tribune he traveled to Afghanistan as part of his work with McKinsey.
