Dems Slam Billionaire Set To Enter Presidential Race

Via The Washington Examiner:

Democratic presidential candidates reacted with scorn, derision, and sarcasm to news that former New York City mayor and multibillionaire Michael Bloomberg is preparing to join the primary field in which they’ve been jockeying for most of the year.

┬áThe campaigns for Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker fundraised off Bloomberg’s entry into the race in emails sent to supporters Thursday night.

“We already have one self-funding billionaire in this race, and … it looks like we just got another,” Booker’s campaign said in an email. “Michael Bloomberg will likely be spending millions of his own personal fortune to fund his campaign.”

Also seeking the nomination is businessman Tom Steyer, who made a multibillion-dollar fortune in hedge funds.
