THE 51st STATE? Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Says It’s Time for DC Statehood

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.25.20

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg called on lawmakers to make the District of Columbia the 51st state in the USA Thursday; saying the “time has come” to add an additional two Senators to Congress.

“The time has come for DC to become a state,” said Bloomberg from the capital.

 

Bloomberg’s big investment in the 2020 race for the White House appears to be paying off, with new national polls showing the former New York City Mayor rising to fourth place.

“The former mayor’s showing in the poll represents an increase of 4 points since a Monmouth survey conducted in December and the highest he’s registered in a national poll since jumping into the race late last year,” reports Politico.

“Former Vice President Joe Biden leads the pack with 30 percent, up 4 points from a month ago. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is in second, rising 2 points to 23 percent, followed by Warren, who dropped 3 points to 14 percent,” adds the website.

Bloomberg trails the top three candidates at 9%.

The former Big Apple Mayor’s campaign touted the numbers Wednesday, pointing out the billionaire has yet to appear in a single televised presidential debate alongside his Democratic challengers.
