Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing a presidential run as a Democrat. The self-made billionaire who has been a registered Democrat, a registered Republican, a registered Independent, and once again as of last year a registered Democrat will file papers in Alabama before that state’s deadline Friday.
“Should Mr. Bloomberg proceed with a campaign, it could represent a seismic disruption in the Democratic race,” The New York Times reports, adding that he could be “a grave and instantaneous threat to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.”
Howard Wolfson, a close advisor to the former mayor says: “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.”
