Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley spent his Tuesday night mingling with a mini-medley of mayors, including perhaps the most famous modern mayor in the United States: Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Cranley, Buttigieg and West Sacramento, California Mayor Christopher Cabaldon spent the evening at Buttigieg’s home, according to a tweet.

Topics of discussion presumably included John Mayer, the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile and luxury skincare brand La Mer.

Buttigieg, a former Navy officer, has never served in a national political position and numbers among 24 people currently seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. However, he consistently polls higher than many hopefuls with longer and more prominent careers, including Sens. Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar.

That’s not enough to break the tight grip former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren have on the top three spots, however, according to a recent compilation of polls from RealClearPolitics.
