Michael Bloomberg Poised To File For Democratic Presidential Primary In Alabama

Michael Bloomberg to file for Alabama 2020 presidential primary

Former New York City mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg is reportedly making preparations to jump into the crowded Democratic primary to run for president.

The billionaire Bloomberg had said back in March he wouldn't run, but has been toying for weeks with the idea of seeking the White House after all, according to an advisor, who was quoted as saying he had yet to make a final decision.

Bloomberg sent staffers to Alabama to get signatures to qualify for the state's primary, the report also said.

But in a statement Thursday, his political adviser Howard Wolfson says Bloomberg is anxious that the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates is "not well positioned" to defeat President Donald Trump.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) during the Democratic Presidential Debate at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio on October 15, 2019.

Bloomberg has outspokenly opposed President Donald Trump and his policies since the 2016 campaign, calling him a "dangerous demagogue" in his endorsement of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.

The development comes after Bloomberg signaled last month that he had not ruled out a presidential bid, privately telling associates that he has doubts that former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen.

But Bloomberg is said to have become increasingly anxious about the direction of the Democratic primary as more liberal candidates like Massachusetts Sen. He would have to build a campaign from zero in the early primary and caucus states, and it may be hard for him to qualify for the two remaining debates this year. In 2018, Bloomberg rejoined the Democratic Party.
