Liberal Billionaire Considering Presidential Run

Via The Washington Examiner:

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is reportedly weighing a run for the Democratic presidential nomination after previously ruling it out.

 Bloomberg has recently told associates that in light of Joe Biden suddenly being neck-and-neck in the polls against liberal Elizabeth Warren, he is reconsidering jumping into the crowded primary field, according to CNBC.

The 77-year-old billionaire has said he is “still looking at” a presidential run, but those close to him say that the only way he would enter the race would be if Biden continues to falter and leaves the race before or during the early primaries.

“I think it’s something he wants. He has not been shy about that,” one of Bloomberg’s allies said. “Nothing can happen unless Biden drops out, and that’s not happening anytime soon.”
