LA Times - 04-23


There’s never been a presidential contender quite like South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the gay, Episcopalian, Maltese-American millennial and Afghanistan veteran who plays classical piano, speaks seven languages and has emerged over the past few months as a legitimate challenger to the better-known likes of Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. And although Buttigieg, 37, hasn’t told voters much thus far about how he’d govern a profoundly divided nation, we already know a fair amount about something almost as important: Mayor Pete’s eclectic taste in pop music.
