Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Tuesday night that he does not believe his consulting work at a health insurance company led to layoffs after he left.

“I doubt it,” Buttigieg told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow when asked if there was a correlation between his work at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan in 2007 and layoffs two years later.

“I don’t know what happened in the time after I left. That was in 2007, when they decided to shrink in 2009.”

A spokesperson for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan also played down Buttigieg’s work for the company, saying that “for a brief time” he was “part of a larger McKinsey team we engaged back in 2007 to consult with our company during a corporate-wide reorganization.”
