‘Mini’ Mike Bloomberg starts making a name for himself in the campaign

Michael Bloomberg got into the Democrat primary game late, but with $56 billion at his back, he’s making up for lost time.  Unfortunately for him, he’s a bad candidate running against a master.

In March 2019, Michael Bloomberg said he wouldn’t run.  That was a smart decision, because it let the other 400 (or so) candidates duke it out amongst themselves.  Only when the field had been winnowed down, with a few clear frontrunners, did Bloomberg finally throw himself into the race.

By January, with Democrats worried about an open socialist, a senile has-been, a lying harridan, and a baby boy, did some decide that maybe Bloomberg wouldn’t be such a bad thing.  Despite being an unpleasant, out-of-touch plutocrat with despotic tendencies, was Bloomberg just what the Democrat Party needed to save itself?

Certainly, Bloomberg has a great ground game.  At one point, he spent more than $100 million on ads in three weeks and is paying field organizers $6,000 a month.  He already has 1,000 staffers on the ground.
