Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is attracting support from across the political establishment — the mainstream media, NeverTrump pundits like Bill Kristol, and Silicon Valley CEOs have all rallied to the South Bend mayor’s campaign.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg visited South Bend in 2017, long before the mayor announced his candidacy.
Visits from Zuckerberg and others might be as much due to Buttigieg courting big tech as it is about big tech courting Buttigieg.
Second, how many declining rust belt towns are situated on the doorstep of a renowned research university like Notre Dame?
Kristol himself says that President Trump is “scared to run against Buttigieg.” And The Bulwark has even published a piece hailing the South Bend mayor for… his campaign logos.
