How Michael Bloomberg is trying to shape Democratic agenda

Bernie Sanders, who are flush with cash from small-dollar donors.

But he is understood to have recently voiced scepticism that any of the current Democratic field could beat Mr Trump in the election a year from now. He ultimately decided against a run, citing in part the apparent strength of former Vice President Joe Biden, a fellow moderate.

All is not well in the Democratic Party's quest for a presidential nominee. Elizabeth Warren faced off during the recent debate in OH, along with several other Democratic hopefuls.

He reportedly holds a hard stance on climate change as the United Nations secretary-general's special envoy for climate action, and gun control.

Others pointed to Bloomberg fatigue and his 12 year record, which is hardly unblemished.

Bloomberg said he would decide by February, but his team had been looking at possible campaign office spaces in Manhattan, according to a source. Instead, they previewed a strategy that would focus more heavily on the March 3 Super Tuesday contests, including in delegate-rich California.

Bloomberg was elected mayor of New York City as a Republican but left the party in 2007.

Bloomberg would face a Democratic electorate that has largely rallied around more progressive candidates. Sen. "But there is zero evidence that rank-and-file voters in the early states of Iowa and New Hampshire feel the same". "I'm a big Bloomberg fan".

Michael Bloomberg might be entering the 2020 presidential race after announcing he wouldn't run in March. This source also said these are "unprecedented times" and that Bloomberg is concerned about what he's seeing both from Democrats and President Donald Trump.

Some lawmakers tell us privately that they've heard this too many times before. "And I believe that Mike has a lot to add", said Yang, who praised Bloomberg as a "great philanthropist" and "an extraordinary leader". On November 8, 2019, news broke that Bloomberg was laying the foundation for a late start to the 2020 presidential election. "He is the foil". Howard Wolfson, Bloomberg's political advisor, suggested it in a series of tweets on Thursday.

But in the past he's ruled himself out because he thought Americans wouldn't vote for a billionaire NY businessman.

According to the Real Clear Politics Poll, Biden is leading in 2020 Democratic presidential nomination polling data, followed by Warren in second place and Sanders in third place. The deadline to file for the ballot is Friday.

Bloomberg would have to swiftly make up ground to compete with candidates like Biden, Warren and others, who have spent months traveling the country meeting voters.

Bloomberg has switched between the Republican and Democratic parties over the years and also served as an independent mayor.
