“After more than a year of this primary, the field is as unsettled as ever. No one has made the sale or even come close to it," Bloomberg spokeswoman Sabrina Singh said Tuesday. "Meanwhile, Mike is taking the fight to Trump every day, doubling down on the national campaign strategy we've been running from the beginning.”

Mayor Mike is several steps closer to officially becoming the Democrat Party's candidate for POTUS. Rich old white man money is going to quite literally going to flood the airwaves. Mayor Mike has already slid into the Democrat candidate's debate stage. Mayor Mike is going to win the Democrats brokered convention.

Strange how an app created by Hillary campaign staff fails right as Bernie is set to win and take the momentum.

Instead, mayor Pete who is no threat to actually win the nomination is pushed to the top so far. All this helps Bloomberg and hurts Bernie. But just a coincidence, no?

Don’t worry, Pete is in first place for delegate assignment with 62 percent of the results in.

despite Bernie winning the popular vote in both rounds. Which is odd. As well as how did Mayor Pete know to claim victory last night when there were no results yet?

I think Bloomberg is a tad bit jealous of Trump for the fact that Trump is not as rich as he is but Trump became president. It's true that if you spend enough money, you can buy just about anything.

I definitely agree with that.

Iowa is next door to Indiana. Both are mainly farm/ranch states. Of course Pete had a leg up over all the coasties.

Bloomberg has a record of public service, but he was certainly born with a silver spoon. He's also been a Republican and Independent, so his political slant is flexible. Not sure if that is good or bad.

So apparently these people could not even write an app to screw Sanders... but you all have to trust them to run the infinitely more complex health system of a huge country. Makes complete sense!

Well, it's his money. Said the same thing about Trump in 2016

Bloomberg was born at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, in Brighton, a neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, on February 14, 1942, to William Henry Bloomberg (1906–1963), a bookkeeper for a dairy company,[7] and Charlotte (Rubens) Bloomberg (1909–2011)

Bloomberg's paternal grandfather, Alexander "Elick" Bloomberg, was an immigrant from Russia.[2] Bloomberg's maternal grandfather, Max Rubens, was an immigrant from what is present-day Belarus

The family lived in Allston until Bloomberg was two years old, when they moved to Brookline, Massachusetts, for the next two years, finally settling in the Boston suburb of Medford, Massachusetts, where he lived until after he graduated from college

Bloomberg attended Johns Hopkins University, where he joined the fraternity Phi Kappa Psi. In 1962, as a sophomore, he constructed the school mascot's (the blue jay's) costume.[17] He graduated in 1964 with a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering. In 1966, he graduated from Harvard Business School with a Master of Business Administration.

Not sure how much his father a dairy company bookkeeper makes, but unless he had rich immigrant grandparents, he certainly didn't have to study to be an electrical engineer
