Grossman met Buttigieg two years ago when the mayor was mounting a bid for DNC chair, according to The Boston Globe.
“I said, ‘This is a guy who can help revolutionize a party that is in desperate need of being revolutionized,’” Grossman told The Globe.
“As I see the maturity he has shown as he’s become a more prominent figure on the national stage, it validated all the instincts I had when I supported him for chair of the DNC,” he added.
Grossman has also served as the Massachusetts state treasurer and previously donated to Sen.

He told the newspaper that he still likes Warren.
“You would never hear me say a negative thing about Elizabeth Warren,” he said. “My concern is the future of the United States … and I think Pete has the capacity to be the beacon for an awful lot of people who really feel a deep, deep sense of concern.”
The Globe reports that Grossman will go to what is expected to be Buttigieg’s official campaign launch Sunday. Buttigieg was once seen as a long-shot candidate but has been receiving a lot of media attention and even some comparisons to former President Obama in recent weeks.
