Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, is no longer a presidential candidate. He scored very poorly in the recent primaries and now supports that other centre figure, former vice president Joe Biden.
Michael Bloomberg had previously mixed in the fight for the Democratic nomination as an alternative to centre figure Joe Biden. It initially turned out to be doing very badly in the first primaries in Iowa and New Hampshire.
However, the 78-year-old Bloomberg could not have done much better and did not really make a good impression in a debate with the other candidates.
The billionaire and former mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, also did very severely yesterday on “Super Tuesday”, the primacy in no fewer than 14 states. He could only get the lead in American Samoa, an overseas territory in the Pacific.
Bloomberg now draws his conclusions and leaves the race. He now supports Joe Biden, former vice president under President Barack Obama.
Biden – who was hardly involved until a few days ago – has become the big winner of Super Tuesday with victories in 9 of the 14 states.
Bloomberg’s support can be very important: he had set aside a $ 500 million war fund for his campaign. Earlier, Biden had already received the support of three other Democratic presidential candidates who threw in the towel: Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar.
