Rhode Island governor backs Michael Bloomberg for president

Rhode Island governor backs Michael Bloomberg for president”

That's boosted him in recent polls even though he is not competing head-to-head with the rest of the Democratic field in early voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire.

"Trump's insults just don't bother me", Bloomberg said at a community college in Fresno.

Bloomberg's charges were well-founded, although Trump's fake tan is smeared - rather than sprayed - bronze-colored makeup, according to the undocumented immigrants who worked as housekeepers at one of his golf clubs. "I have never backed down from a bully or run away from a fight".

Bloomberg made a late entrance in the race for the Democratic nomination and has chosen to focus his campaign efforts on Super Tuesday when California and 13 other states will choose a Democratic nominee for president on March 3.

Could this really have been the last Iowa caucuses?

It's unusual, but not unprecedented, for a candidate to turn away from Iowa, the time-honored launching pad for presidential candidates. It's similar to a presidential campaign strategy deployed in 2008 by another former NY mayor, Rudy Giuliani, who was an early drop-out in a year when John McCain become the eventual Republican nominee.

The day of campaigning provided a window into Bloomberg's broader strategy. When he reconsidered and got in the 2020 race "it was too late to get in" the Iowa contest, he said. He lamented how disagreements in America too often end in violent deaths.

Visiting a region with a large Hispanic population, he told the crowd "Latino issues are American issues", earning a round of cheers. Among them will be California, which sends 495 Democratic delegates to the Democratic National Convention in July.

Axelrod wasn't the only one to dismiss the Iowa caucuses on Tuesday, with Sen. Still, he remains unknown to many voters.

Today, Bloomberg's campaign announced a fresh list of endorsements from more than a dozen mayors around the country, as well as prominent former mayors of big cities including Houston, Tampa and Chattanooga. Bloomberg's campaign denied the claim.

Tanya Young, a 39-year-old actor who lives in Compton, said that while she respected "the halo Biden has for working with Obama", she was not convinced that any of the other Democratic candidates could win, and was particularly impressed by Mr. Bloomberg's past contributions to other Democrats and his promise to back whoever wins the nomination. Raimondo, a former venture capitalist, called Bloomberg her political idol during that campaign.

The candidate, which is worth $ 60 billion, has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into his own campaign.
