“Michael Bloomberg has indicated to associates in recent weeks that Joe Biden’s recent struggles against Sen. Elizabeth Warren are making him rethink his decision to stay out of the 2020 Democratic primary,” CNBC reports.
“Bloomberg has signaled he’s ‘still looking at’ running for president, but people close him say that the only way he could even go down that path is if Biden’s fortunes suffer so much that he drops out before or during the early stages of the primary. Bloomberg could then enter the race as one of the rare moderates with enough name recognition and campaign funding to make a run.”
Said one Bloomberg ally: “I think it’s something he wants. He has not been shy about that. Nothing can happen unless Biden drops out, and that’s not happening anytime soon.”Save to Favorites
