Former Mayor Looking To Jump Into Democratic Race?

While rumors have swirled about “will he, or won’t he,” there have been reports that former New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg is planning on entering the 2020 Democratic race.

According to reporting by the New York Times and other news outlets, Bloomberg is expected to file paperwork this week which will allow him to run in Alabama’s Democratic primary.


The billionaire businessman has reportedly been privately weighing a bid for the White House for weeks, an adviser told the newspaper, but has not made up his mind. Although Alabama does not hold an early primary, candidates who want to formally enter the 2020 presidential race in the state must file paperwork by this Friday. According to The Times, Bloomberg has sent several staffers to Alabama to gather the signatures necessary to qualify for the primary.

“We now need to finish the job and ensure that Trump is defeated—but Mike is increasingly concerned that the current field of candidates is not well-positioned to do that,” Howard Wolfson, a close adviser to Bloomberg, said. “If Mike runs he would offer a new choice to Democrats built on a unique record running America’s biggest city, building a business from scratch and taking on some of America’s toughest challenges as a high-impact philanthropist.”

But, how much weight being mayor of NYC carries remains to be seen. Current NYC Mayor, Bill de Blasio was forced to abandon his bid for the 2020 presidential nomination back in September, failing to even rise to 1% in the polls during his campaign.

And, another very well-known former New York City mayor – Rudolf Giuliani is now at the very center of the Ukraine impeachment controversy.

    Not well positioned to beat Trump. Wow, that is an understatement if I ever heard one. And this guy, who knows what his chances will be. The other candidates will say he is just another billionnaire and establishment person. It would be interesting to see him in the debates. That will make or break him. Better get used to insults.

    This is the antiquated version of Beto the gun grabber! This one is also a gun grabber but at his age, he would definitely require assistance with the grabbing!
    Hey Bloomberg… go ahead, throw into the economy few million dollars and we will take advantage of them when Pres Trump is re-elected and he makes our economy even better than it is now!!!!

    One more hopeful entering the race as a democrat will only help ensure Trumps win in 2020.

DONALD J.TUMP is bring A.M ERICA back 2 LIFE again under Obama our nation was dying. Obama was causing our nation 2 be dysfunctional. Pr.Trump is restoring out constution our freedom if worship. He is getting rid of child & human trafficking. Lets not forget about our econo.economy & job creation under Pr Donald J.Trumps Administration. And look at all the jobs ourvduely elected President has brought back from China & other countries. As well as making them do right by all Americans. Payi g theirvway & not allowing other countries taking our job but sharing jobs in a way American’s will benifit & the other nations will no longer be taking from us but paying theirvshair & working with the American people not steling jobs from us. With a President who has done All if that who could beet him? No President will have a seconf term im Jesus Name. No One Can Beet M President & all of our Duely Elected President. I might eve add not only did he do all of the above he has done all of the above under tuns of trauma drama brought on by the Dem & the fat Legt. No Presifent Trump will not only be Pr.Trump win the election in 2020 but Pr. Donald J.Trump will go down in History as the man who save America & made Ametica Great Again!!!

    I’m an Independent voter who backs Mr. Bloomberg. This country needs to heal to move forward. Today’s Republicans and Progressive Democrats do not fill the need.
