Hours before the esteemed Presidential Politics for America deemed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had the ninth best chance to win the Democratic nomination, the Mayor announced he wouldn’t even seek it. (I wrote the post on Monday and “pre-published” it for 7:00 this morning. Big mistake. Only now am I catching up with yesterday’s news.)
I thought his uniqueness as a billionaire could work to his advantage in a crowded primary, but he determined that this uniqueness could instead be applied to fighting for his issues outside of a presidential campaign. Respect.
Anyway, Bloomberg vacated the #9 spot, so everyone beneath him moves up one. Welcome to the top 10, Pete Buttigieg!
