“She has a lot to share and is happy to give advice to the 2020 candidates,” one Clinton ally said.
 
The former secretary of State met with Buttigieg at her office in New York, a source said.
 
Clinton has not endorsed anyone in the race and her allies don’t expect an endorsement to come until at least the end of the primary. 
 
The development follows reports that Buttigieg has gained the support of several top fundraisers who worked for Clinton during her presidential bid. Among them was Steve Elmendorf, who bundled more than $100,000 for her in 2016.
