How Trump plans to upstage the Iowa Democratic caucuses

How Trump plans to upstage the Iowa Democratic caucuses

While other candidates have sought to prove themselves in the quaint retail politics of traditional starting states, Bloomberg's approach is decidedly wholesale, with a focus on large states with far more delegates at stake.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is apparently willing to become slightly less of a billionaire in his effort to escort Donald Trump from the Oval Office, and the New York Times reports that he's willing to spend $1 billion from his personal fortune-even if he is not the Democratic nominee. The only rival he was talking about was President Donald Trump, and he spoke about Texas as a battlefield in November and not about an early primary.

Though Bloomberg argues that Iowa and New Hampshire lack diversity, the other two early primary states - Nevada and SC - give significant voice to Latino and African-American voters, respectively.

Bloomberg wrote that lack of diversity in Iowa and New Hampshire hurt candidates by leaving out voters. After entering the race late and missing the first six Democratic debates, Bloomberg generally sits fifth in national public opinion polls behind Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Warren and Pete Buttigieg.

"It's wonderful to see so many of you here". MJ Lee cites four sources who told her the senators agreed not to attack each other, but when Warren outlined her strengths against President Donald Trump, "Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win". "I'm spending all my money to get rid of Trump", Bloomberg told Reuters aboard his campaign bus on Saturday, during a almost 300-mile (483-km) drive across Texas, one of the 14 states that will vote on Super Tuesday on March 3.

At campaign events in San Antonio, Austin and Dallas in Texas on Saturday, Bloomberg said his bipartisan nature made it more likely he could deliver on his pledges to expand health insurance coverage, fight climate change and reduce gun violence. Bloomberg has already spent $ 200 million on campaign advertising, the Times noted.

"I have never said a negative word about Elizabeth Warren who is a friend of mine".

"We're probably the only two that remember", Bloomberg said.

At the last event of the day in Dallas, he turned to voter Dennis Tenley after seeing his Johns Hopkins University sweatshirt, Bloomberg's Alma Mater.

"He's not running for the money". Everywhere in the park, 27-year-old Aaron Krage said he knew about Bloomberg's background as a businessman and mayor and that he would not accept campaign donations.

"It depends whether the candidate needs help; if they're doing very well, they need less". "If we're lucky it might be able to persuade some of the Republicans on the fence".
