The debate debut for the billionaire former mayor of NY is poised to offer fresh insight into whether his unconventional campaign strategy - bypassing early voting states such as Nevada and spending hundreds of millions of dollars to spread his message on the airwaves - is sustainable.
Since Raimondo's endorsement, Bloomberg's 2011 remarks saying that "Black and Latino men don't know how to behave in the workplace" have surfaced - as well as his own alleged sexist and abusive behavior in the workplace, including allegedly telling one pregnant employee to "kill it". "I could teach anybody, even people in this room - no offense intended - to be a farmer", he said.
Most people, he said, "care about health care, they care about education, they care about safety and all of those kinds of things".
"I think we have released a detailed medical report and I'm comfortable on what we have done", he said.
"They've got to get out there and say, 'I disagree with socialism". "I misspoke when I said Bloomberg had a heart attack", she wrote. His team notes he never faced more than one rival at a time over three elections for New York City mayor.
"Here is the message: Anyone here worth $60 billion, you can run for president, and you can buy the airwaves".
"Has Mike made mistakes?" We saw millions of people take to the streets...
And her allies believe she has a ideal foil in Bloomberg. I wonder if that has something to do with her "more selective appeal", as Ian Faith might describe it. Look, President Trump has been awful for the Latino community, and bad for the immigrant community. We all have to everything we can to make sure President Trump is not reelected.
"But at least now primary voters curious about how each candidate will take on Donald Trump can get a live demonstration of how we each take on an egomaniac billionaire", she said. He qualified after surging in the polls.
The ninth Democratic debate's other participants - former vice president Joe Biden, former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar, all moderates, and the more progressive senators Sanders and Elizabeth Warren - have castigated Bloomberg for his campaign approach.
The survey of 1,702 California residents likely to vote in the state Democratic primary on March 3 found: 32% favored Sanders, 14% former Vice President Joe Biden, 13% Massachusetts Sen.
With Bloomberg's political stock rising, a spokesman said that the candidate would sell Bloomberg LP, the global news giant that bears his name and made him a billionaire, if his presidential campaign is successful.

On Tuesday, strategists for Bloomberg told reporters they believe the race will be a two-man contest between him and Sanders.
As part of a broader financial reform plan, Bloomberg is proposing a 0.1% tax on all financial transactions to "raise revenue needed to address wealth inequality, and support other measures-such as a speed limit on trading-to curb predatory behavior and reduce the risk of destabilizing 'flash crashes'".
"I think we have a monster in the White House - what he has done over and over again is undignified, un-American, and hurtful to Americans".
"Mike is running to defeat Donald Trump and reverse the many policies he has implemented that attack the rights of the transgender community", the statement continued. "Yes, Mike has a lot of resources". "While a meme strategy may be new to presidential politics, we're betting it will be an effective component to reach people where they are and compete with President Trump's powerful digital operation".
