Note: The Green Lake County Dems & Friends is not endorsing any candidate for president at this time. But we will share information on candidates that we think is of value and that is also perhaps not getting much play in the media. This article is an example.
Pete Buttigieg, aka Mayor Pete, is an intriguing Democratic candidate for president. He is also a fast-rising star with some notable weaknesses. One, already covered by the media, is his lack of support in the African American community nationally (and in particular, his issues with the African American community in South Bend, IND., where he is the mayor). Two, he worked for a time for McKinsey, a major international consulting company that has a spotty client record.
Both could greatly diminish his standing within the Democratic Party. So, what is the story behind his work for McKinsey. A recent article in the Atlantic tried to provide the answer and is worth reading if you are interested in Mayor Pete as a serious candidate.
