Pete Buttigieg Voted Most Likely to Be President in High School

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Thirty-seven-year-old 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana and an Afghanistan war veteran recently announced his run for president. Since then, the unknown mayor saw his numbers surge in the polls.

Buttigieg’s high school must have seen something in Buttigieg. In the graduating class of 2000 from St. Joseph High School, he was voted “most likely to become president” in his yearbook. This information was given to ABC news from Katie Kowals, whose brother-in-law Peter Kowals knows the mayor well.

Buttigieg was also voted most likely to succeed and was his class valedictorian.

Since Buttigieg graduated from high school, he went to Harvard University and became an Oxford Rhodes Scholar. Later, he joined the Navy and served in Afghanistan.

In the first three months of 2019, the 2020 Democratic nominee has raised over $7 million. If he won the nomination, the mayor would become the first openly gay individual to be nominated from a major political party.

Buttigieg married in 2018, Chasten, his husband. He would also become the youngest president in the history of the United States. On inauguration day which is January 20, 2012, the mayor would turn 39-years-old on Jan. 19.
