Bloomberg Sees Opening For White House Bid

posted on February 12, 2016

Aides to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg say the results of the New Hampshire primary show he may have an opening for his presidential candidacy, according to the Wall Street Journal. Last week, as the Journal reported, the anti-gun billionaire confirmed that he was considering a run for the White House as an independent and admitted that he would be willing to spend $1 billion of his $30 billion fortune to finance such a campaign. 

According to the The New York Times, Bloomberg sponsored polling in December to gauge his odds against Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and he has plans to commission additional polling after last Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. 

Even if Bloomberg doesn’t enter the race, you can bet he’ll continue his campaign of trying to bully or bankroll other candidates into advancing his gun-ban agenda.
