Darlings of Big Tech: Mayor Pete Buttigieg

Pete Buttigieg, presently the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has made himself the darling of the Silicon Valley Big Tech community. One of the first few hundred original Facebook users (Facebook user #287), he was photographed driving around his home state of Indiana with his former college classmate, Facebook icon Mark Zuckerberg, during the latter’s visit there in 2017. Several of the candidate’s other college classmates ended up in Big Tech, affording Buttigieg deep, long-lived connections in the Valley, where he frequently holds big donor fundraisers.
