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. One Texas survey since Bloomberg's launch, released December 11 by CNN, found Bloomberg at 5% - good enough for fifth place, but still far behind Biden, who placed first with 35%. Encouraged by the murky outcome, Mr. Bloomberg authorized his campaign team to double his spending on television commercials in every market where he is now advertising and expand his campaign's field staff to more than two thousand people, strategists involved in the conversations said.
A few hecklers tried to interrupt Bloomberg, but were mostly drowned out by the candidate's supporters and led outside by police.
She is the first governor in the nation to endorse Bloomberg's candidacy, and she is taking on a co-chair role with his campaign.
"It turns out that a lot of things we thought were true, are true".
Bloomberg characterized the president as a "schoolyard bully" who criticizes Democrats instead of passing substantive policy.
Drama in Trump State of the Union
Democrats had alleged he withheld military aid to Ukraine and asked the country to move against Joe Biden , his political rival . Trump refused to shake Pelosi's hand and later she omitted the customary laudatory words in her introduction of the president.
Bloomberg was in MI and Pennsylvania on Tuesday, and plans to campaign in Providence, Rhode Island, on Wednesday.
Raimondo, however, said she sees Bloomberg as uniquely qualified for the presidency, especially among the current Democratic field.
On Sunday, Bloomberg's campaign denied it had requested a box and taunted the president's "fake hair, his obesity and his spray-on tan".
Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo is poised to endorse former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's bid for President on Wednesday. But in private, Bloomberg advisers have been making intensive overtures to Democratic elected officials to seek their support, including reaching out to officials who have already endorsed Mr. Biden and other Democratic candidates. Beto O'Rourke made a similar campaign stop when he still was in the presidential race.
Previously registered as a Republican and an independent before becoming a Democrat in 2018, Bloomberg is a controversial figure in some circles. A spokeswoman for Bloomberg's campaign said they now have 72 staff on ground and will have 150 staffers in the state by Super Tuesday.
