Billionaire Dem Officially Launches Presidential Bid

Via The Washington Examiner:

Michael Bloomberg has entered the already-crowded Democratic presidential field.

Bloomberg, 77, had earlier in November filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission and filed to appear on some state Democratic primary ballots that had early deadlines, but aides said at the time that the moves were formalities while he decided on launching a full campaign.

His entry to the race was proceeded by a massive ad buy, and the first of his TV ads ran on Sunday, touting his promise “to rebuild the country and restore faith in the dream that defines us: Where the wealthy will pay more in taxes and the middle class get their fair share; everyone without health insurance can get it and everyone who likes theirs, keep it; where jobs won’t just help you get by but get ahead.”

It continues, “And on all those things, Mike Bloomberg intends to make good.”
