Talk about a unique take on a high school superlative.
2020 Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg must have impressed his fellow high school students almost twenty years.
ABC News unearthed a copy of Pete’s yearbook from St. Joseph High School in South Bend, Indiana, where the 37-year-old was voted “Most Likely to be President”.
That wasn’t the only honor he received from his class. He was also “Most Likely to Succeed” and was class valedictorian as well. Such an overachiever.
Pete appeared to be someone who was very involved in his high school activities. Other yearbooks found at a South Bend Public Library found him involved in the National Honor Society, Junior Leaders and Philosophy Club.
He officially announced his bid to become the youngest and first openly gay president last weekend. “My name is Pete Buttigieg, they call me Mayor Pete,” he said on Sunday, April 14 while standing before a crowd of thousands in his hometown. “I am a proud son of South Bend, Indiana and I am running for president of the United States.”
His financial numbers have been impressive so far. Mayor Pete and his team have raised over $7 million in the first quarter of 2019 for his potential presidential campaign.
He has also been honest and candid about many areas of his life, including his marriage to partner Chasten Glezman and why he decided to come out later in life.
Maybe that superlative he was voted on all those years ago might actually come true.
