Representatives of Bloomberg submitted documents to the Alabama Democratic Party in Montgomery to cast his name for the Super Tuesday contest on March 3.
The reason why Bloomberg submits documents Alabama is solely due to the early filing deadline of the state. Registration deadline for the state is Friday.
Howard Wolfson, a Bloomberg consultant, told CNN in a statement that the former New York mayor plans to skip the first four major contests.
"When we start, we are confident that we can do this in states that vote on Super Tuesday and beyond where we will start on a consistent basis," Wolfson said in a statement issued for the first time by the Washington Post was released.
"But the late timing of our accession means that many candidates already have a head start in the first four states where they spent months on campaigns and money, and we have tremendous respect for the democratic primary process and many friends in these states, but our plan is to reach a broad public based, national campaign. "
The move is the clearest sign that the former mayor has been seriously considering, despite Bloomberg's submission in Alabama, he has yet to make a final decision, a Bloomberg spokesman told CNN on Thursday.
Bloomberg's Possible Entry into First The election campaign of Vice President Joe Biden attempts to break out of the democratic field, and as Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a liberal legislator who has defended herself against billionaires like Bloomberg, she enters the democratic election campaign one. A possible offer from Bloomberg would certainly confound the democratic primary process dramatically.
According to a person familiar with his thinking, Bloomberg privately voiced concerns about the strength of the 2020 field. A Democratic strategist who previously worked with Bloomberg said the former mayor considered his options partly because of the outcome of the Virginia elections, Investments by its arms control group would have helped Democrats gain control of the General Assembly. 19659002] A survey by CNN / Des Moines Register in March found that Bloomberg was one of the least popular candidates considering applying for the Democratic nomination. The survey found that 27% of likely democratic Caucusgoers viewed it positively compared to 38% who had an unfavorable opinion.
Bloomberg publicized a 2020 bid earlier this year, traveled across the country to meet with voters and see if a run was possible. During this public speculation, he told reporters that he was seriously considering an offer, to the point that he had decided to fund a campaign himself.
But Bloomberg decided in March that he would not run for president, though he had done so For months, Bloomberg tends to.
However, Bloomberg has begun to rethink this decision, not least because he does not believe any of the current candidates will be able to defeat Trump.
