Michael R. Bloomberg has instructed advisers to draw up plans for a potential independent campaign in this year’s presidential race. His advisers and associates said he was galled by Donald J. Trump’s dominance of the Republican field, and troubled by Hillary Clinton’s stumbles and the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on the Democratic side.
Why not go all out and let Rupert Murdoch chair the advisory committee?
Last August – 2025
Who would media mogul Rupert Murdoch like to see on the ballot in 2016? Apparently Michael Bloomberg.
Now he acts allegedly surprised. Never mind he was begging Bloomberg to run in August.
He should be ecstatic about it. Or has the media mogul changed his frugal mind?
