Michael Bloomberg files to run in Alabama primary

Former New York City Mayor and UN Special Envoy for Climate Action Michael Bloomberg

Doug Schoen, a Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor, touted former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as a "substantive" candidate for the Democratic nomination in 2020.

Were he to enter, Bloomberg would be the 18th Democrat in the race to defeat Republican incumbent US President Donald Trump who, like Bloomberg, is from NY.

So you want to run for president.

The Iowa assemblies, the first nomination contest on the Democratic primary calendar, will be held on February 3. But I know Michael Bloomberg fairly well. Warren has become known for drawing large crowds in liberal bastions like Manhattan, but is trying to bolster her appeal in more conservative areas that voted for President Donald Trump in 2016, like Nevada's state capital. "I will say that I think it'd be very tough for someone to jump into the race at this point in time", tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang said on CNN Thursday.

Bloomberg's move also underscores deep divisions in the Democratic Party, with the base taking a hard leftward turn, but with moderates seeking a more centrist candidate. "He's not going to do well", Trump told reporters on Friday morning.

Bloomberg will also face questions about his record as a three-term mayor of NY, especially from the Democratic Party's outspoken progressive wing, and why he's needed at a race that still contains 17 candidates vying to challenge Republican President Donald Trump at November 2020.

"I've always thought Biden was wonderful", she said at an event for another candidate this week.

"The billionaire class is scared and they should be scared", Sanders wrote.

Bernie Sanders is a 78-year-old self-described democratic socialist recovering from a heart attack. And he is unlikely to be able, at this late stage, to establish himself as a serious contender in the early primary states, even if he is prepared to double Steyer's record spending. Instead, a viable Bloomberg campaign will depend upon Iowa and New Hampshire and SC splitting, giving the party no clear front-runner ahead of Super Tuesday.

Former NYC Mayor Bloomberg has been a Republican, Independent, and Democrat during his political career.

Varney believes Bloomberg will put gun control at the forefront of his campaign since he's already spent millions doing so. Such issues have particular resonance in the nation's suburbs, Republican-leaning areas that have shifted away from Trump's Republican Party since his election.

On Israel, Bloomberg said he had "deep reservations" about the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which the Trump administration withdrew from in May 2018, reimposing sanctions lifted under it, along with enacting new financial penalties against the regime. "We've already discounted one billionaire and he's in White House".
