Former NYC mayor now eyeing run for president

(WQOW) – There is another Democrat who may be jumping into the already crowded race for president.

ABC News is reporting Michael Bloomberg is planning to submit his name for the Democratic Primary in Alabama. Friday is the deadline to do so.

ABC News says Bloomberg has not officially decided on a run for Commander in Chief, but he is actively considering it and his taking this step to keep his options open.

Last year, Bloomberg announced on Instagram that he decided to re-register as a Democrat, a move many interpreted as a strong indication he had interest in a presidential bid.

“At key points in U.S. history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution,” the billionaire wrote. “Two years ago at the Democratic Convention, I warned of those threats.”

Bloomberg has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.
