Bloomberg overwhelmed his speech with statistics to back up his record: how much crime rates fell in NY during his tenure and how much graduation rates went up.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is apparently willing to become slightly less of a billionaire in his effort to escort Donald Trump from the Oval Office, and the New York Times reports that he's willing to spend $1 billion from his personal fortune-even if he is not the Democratic nominee. And we need a system that both better reflects our country and puts us in a better position to defeat a candidate like Donald Trump.
While the top Democratic candidates campaigned in Iowa and Nevada this weekend, Bloomberg was on a five-stop bus tour Saturday of reliably Republican Texas, which doesn't vote until March 3.
"Bernie knows me and he's known me for a long time", Warren said.
"No one is gonna trash Elizabeth Warren", Sanders said, calling her his "very good" friend.
Warren's campaign has yet to comment.
One of the reasons I'm reasonably confident that I can beat Trump is that I would be acceptable to the moderate Republicans you should have.
Bloomberg is skipping over the early primary and caucus states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and SC due to his late entry into the race, focusing on the delegate-rich states that hold contests on Super Tuesday and beyond.
According to a FiveThirtyEight poll published on January 8, Trump leads against Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Vice President Joe Biden, in the state. Montemayor voted for Trump in 2016 but worries the president's conservative appointees to federal courts could undermine abortion rights. But only Steyer spent millions on social media ads to cadge contributions of a buck or two, just to satisfy the DNC's silly criteria. His ad strategy includes a 60-second Super Bowl commercial. Last year's National Football League championship game drew almost 100 million viewers.
"You can't reach 330 million people by shaking your hand".
As for his fellow Democrats, Bloomberg said he would welcome any criticism they would accuse him of. "If the Super Bowl wasn't a place to get to an terrible lot of people they wouldn't be charging a lot, or nobody would be paying it".
