Pete Buttigieg, now known as Mayor Pete, currently serves as the mayor of South Bend, Indiana -- which is why the nickname really works. He was first elected in 2011 at age 29, and won re-election in 2015. During his first term, he was deployed to Afghanistan as an intelligence officer in the United States Navy Reserve, where he served as a lieutenant for seven months. Buttigieg is the first openly gay Democratic presidential candidate. Before becoming mayor, Buttigieg worked as a consultant at McKinsey and Company. He also plays the guitar and piano, and seems to learn a new, sort of obscure language every other week. Buttigieg received his B.A. from Harvard University and was selected as a Rhodes Scholar, receiving his M.A. from Oxford. Learn more about Mayor Pete below:
