    Default Report: Michael Bloomberg Filing to Run for President

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing to file paperwork to run for president in at least one state with an early filing deadline, according to a report.

    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] stated Thursday evening that Bloomberg is expected to complete paperwork for the Democrat Party’s presidential primary in Alabama before this Friday’s deadline. However, the Times said the 77-year-old has yet to officially make up his mind about seeking the highest office in the land.

    “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 longtime Bloomberg, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Politico.

    “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,” added Wolfson.

    The development comes after Bloomberg [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] last month that he had not ruled out a presidential bid, privately telling associates that he has doubts that former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) could defeat President Donald Trump in 2020. Bloomberg, who Forbes magazine estimates has a net worth of $51 billion, is believed to be [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to spend $100 million on a White House bid if he jumped into the crowded race.

    “Mike has the infrastructure and the team waiting on ice, which he can quickly mobilize. There are indications that he’s preparing to make a run,” one source told the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    “People are just waiting for him to give the sign. Indications are that he’s considering a run after turning the page a few months ago,” the sourced added.

    In March, Bloomberg [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] a 2020 bid, telling friends that he was “clear-eyed about the difficulty of winning the Democratic nomination in such a crowded field.”

    “While there would be no higher honor than serving as president, my highest obligation as a citizen is to help the country the best way I can, right now. That’s what I’ll do, including the launch of a new effort called Beyond Carbon,” the billionaire [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] at the time.

    Bloomberg has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to promote progressive causes, including gun control and climate change and donated over $100 million to help elect competitive Democrat candidates in the 2018 midterm elections.

    Speaking to the Associated Press in January, the billionaire said he would make combating so-called global warming one of his top priorities if elected president. “Climate change could destroy the whole world and kill everyone on it,” he told the news outlet. “It’s frustrating that a lot of people don’t understand that.

    Bloomberg raised eyebrows in September for [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that Chinese Communist Party chairman Xi Jinping is “not a dictator,” arguing the country’s so-called environmental policies show the communist leader answers to a “constituency.”

    This would explain why all his lackeys acted like such a bunch of buffoons, at the Democratic Debates. It's patently obvious, now, they were trying to make him look good...

    This guy is a total opportunist.
    he has been a democrat for most of his life but changed to a republican in 2001 after 911 to win the mayors race in NY.
    A few years later when the patriotic fervor in NY settled down, switched back to being a democrat.

    Bloomie was the favorite son of NYC. Not necessarily New York State. And certainly not a favorite of "fly-over-country" America.

    Trump is enough, and if we have 8 years total of his antics and policies, I think we will be glad to see his ego move on. But a "billionaire Napoleon", I just don't believe we are ready for.

    Nothing like a Nazi billionaire (and a Jew at that) acting like a tyrant........amazing how he "NEEDED" his armed bodyguards to go with him to his home in Bermuda where even the police are unarmed, but his guys had their fully automatic subguns..........................

    Why is it that the party of the "tolerant diverse folks" only seem to be able to have old white folks as their candidates?

    Ross Perot proved that a billion plus will not buy one (1) electoral vote.


    In the 2000 Republican primary to replace retiring the Illinois 10th Congressional District Representative John Porter, Shawn Margaret Donnelley (heiress to the R.R. Donnelley & Sons fortune) spent at least 2.3 million dollars of her family's money to win 9,585 votes. Another candidate, Andrew Hochberg, spent $1 million of his own money for a solid 7,480 votes.


    Mark Kirk won the primary with 19,717 votes. He spent less than half a million dollars. Back then, half a million dollars on a congressional primary was big money to be sure, but it is proof enough that there was a limit to what five (5) times the money could buy Donnelley.


    You need money to advertise your product, but you need a good product -- otherwise you'd be driving your Edsel to a Sambos restaurant to buy a glass of New Coke with your coveted Susan B. Anthony dollars.
