Reports say Sanders told Warren a woman can't win the presidential election
Jan 15 2020
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.
The New York Timesreported on January 11 that Bloomberg "did not rule out spending a billion dollars of his own money on the presidential race of 2020, even if he does not win the Democratic nomination "(it is we who underline). "He can say, 'I'm a business guy, the economy's good and this guy's a socialist.' I think that contrast for Trump is likely one that he'd be excited about in a way that he wouldn't be as excited about Biden or potentially Mayor Pete or some of the more Midwestern moderate candidates".
"We need a system that both better reflects our country and puts us in a better position to defeat a candidate like Donald Trump", Bloomberg said in an op-ed published by CNN, adding: "The first two voting states, Iowa and New Hampshire, are among the most homogenous in the nation".
Bloomberg wrote that lack of diversity in Iowa and New Hampshire hurt candidates by leaving out voters.
According to a Marquette Law School poll conducted December 3-8, Trump held at least a two-point lead over Buttigieg, Sanders and Warren.
"You say unity candidate, I'm wondering if that's a compromise candidate", said Nicole McManus, a medical student who left Sanders' climate rally with a hat, t-shirt, two signs and two bumper stickers emblazoned with his name. "But I'd still support them, yes, because compared to Donald Trump that's easy".
As for his fellow Democrats, Bloomberg said he would welcome any criticism they would accuse him of.
That droll demeanor is not the stuff of the Iowa State Fair soapbox, but few things about Bloomberg's campaign are typical.
Bloomberg has spent an estimated $120 million on political television ads, significantly more than the second highest spender, Biden, with an approximate $1.9 million. "And I think our reforms are enabling that", Perez said, according to the Dallas Morning News. Tenley told Bloomberg that they were classmates and they briefly discussed a professor together.
It's a message that resonated with several people.
The Texas blitz was the kick-off of a nationwide organizing day in 27 states meant to flex his campaign's strength. But Rose's campaign pointed to his comments to NY1 late a year ago about Bloomberg's donation.
