Michael Bloomberg is making big plans. Since June, he has been working to flip the House of Representatives for the Democratic Party in the 2018 midterm elections and has even pledged to spend $80 million to make it happen. Bloomberg’s not stopping there it seems. In a New York Times interview published Monday, September 17th, Michael Bloomberg says that he is exploring a presidential run.
At a gun control event in Seattle on Friday, Bloomberg claimed that running as a Republican is “impossible to conceive,” adding that “I’m just way away from where the Republican Party is today.”
Bloomberg was quick to distance himself from the Democratic Party as well, saying, “That’s not to say I’m with the Democratic Party on everything, but I don’t see how you could possibly run as a Republican.”
As for when an announcement would happen, he added “I’m working on this Nov. 6 election, and after that I’ll take a look at it.”
