Buttigieg for DNC Chair?

Politico reported that South Bend's Democratic mayor Pete Buttigieg may be considering entering the race for chair of the Democratic National Committee. The 34-year-old rising star of the party, Buttigieg won re-election to his mayoral office with more than 80 percent of the vote. His competition for the office would likely be Tom Perez, current Secretary of Labor, Minnesota Representative Keith Ellison and others. Buttigieg was the subject of a flattering story by Frank Bruni, columnist for the New York Times.
