Billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s 2020 campaign was in full spin cycle Thursday; dismissing the former New York Mayor’s disastrous performance at the Democratic Debate in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Michael Bloomberg’s campaign was scrambling on Thursday to put a positive spin on the former mayor’s brutal 2020 debate-stage debut — though an insider admitted that the non-disclosure agreements Bloomberg used in the private sector remain a weak spot,” reports the New York Post.
“You know you’re a winner when you draw attacks from all the candidates,” Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey wrote in an email newsletter to supporters. “Everyone came to destroy Mike and it didn’t happen.”
“Mike Bloomberg presented himself as the leading alternative to Bernie Sanders,” wrote Sheekey. “Everyone came to get under Mike’s skin, but instead, Mike got under Bernie’s.”
“It took Mike just three months to build a stronger campaign than the rest of the field had built in more than a year,” said Sheekey. “It took him just 45 minutes in his first debate in 10 years to get his legs on the stage.
“He was just warming up last night.”

BLOOMBERG TO BERNIE: America’s ‘Best Known Socialist’ is a ‘Millionaire with Three Houses’
Billionaire Mike Bloomberg clashed with Sen. Bernie Sanders during Wednesday night’s fiery debate in Las Vegas; saying America’s “best-known socialist” is a “millionaire with three houses.”
“What a wonderful country we have, the best known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What did I miss here?” asked the former Mayor of New York City.

“Well, I work in Washington… Live in Burlington, and -like thousands of other Vermonters- I do own a summer camp… Forgive me for that,” fired-back Sanders. “Where is your home?”
“New York City, thank you very much, and I pay all my taxes,” said Bloomberg.

DESPERATION: Fading Warren TRASHES Bloomberg, Calls Mayor Mike an ‘Egomaniac Billionaire’
Fading presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren ripped Mike Bloomberg on social media Tuesday; labeling the former Mayor of New York City an “egomaniac billionaire” just one day before they share a debate stage in Las Vegas.
“It’s a shame Mike Bloomberg can buy his way into the debate. But at least now primary voters curious about how each candidate will take on Donald Trump can get a live demonstration of how we each take on an egomaniac billionaire,” posted Warren on Twitter.

Bloomberg is poised to drop more than $124 million in 14 states ahead of the Super Tuesday primary contests on March 3rd; spending 10 times more than his top Democratic rivals.
“Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor, has also poured millions into ground operations in Super Tuesday states. In Colorado, where voters already are casting primary ballots by mail, he has a paid staff of 55 people; Sanders has two,” reports MSN.
“For nearly three months, Bloomberg has been the only Democrat to devote most of his travel to those states, which include California, Texas and North Carolina. His opponents are still scrambling to gain traction in contests on Saturday in Nevada and Feb. 29 in South Carolina. Bloomberg is skipping those races, as he did earlier in Iowa and New Hampshire,” adds the website.
Bloomberg qualified for the next Democratic Debate Tuesday morning, gaining 19% of support nationwide in a last-minute poll conducted by PBS.
