Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg may start a political advocacy group to push policies aligned with immigration, the economy, education and taxpayer funding for more scientific research, an unnamed industry insider said.
Chances are the group — if it is established — would push a more liberal policy.
Mr. Zuckerberg previously has hosted President Obama at a town-hall meeting at Facebook headquarters. He also opened his home a few weeks ago for a fundraiser for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a political figure seen by many on the right as moderate to liberal on the political spectrum.
