Michael Bloomberg Makes It Official: He’s A Registered Democrat Again


Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York, announced Wednesday that he has registered as a Democrat, a move certain to stoke further speculation about whether he intends to run for president in 2020.

Bloomberg, a former Republican and more recently declared political independent, announced his decision in an early morning Instagram post in which he referenced his speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

“At key points in U.S. history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution,” he wrote. “Two years ago at the Democratic Convention, I warned of those threats. Today, I have re-registered as a Democrat – I had been a member for most of my life – because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs.”

Bloomberg has said he will “take a look” at a presidential campaign after the midterm elections.

He has been working in recent months to solidify his ties to the Democratic Party.

Last week, Bloomberg announced he would give $20 million to the main Democratic Senate super PAC.

The enormous sum brings Bloomberg – who has already pledged to spend $80 million to support Democratic congressional candidates – up to $100 million in spending commitments for the 2018 election cycle, firmly positioning himself in the Democratic camp as he contemplates a White House bid.

  1. He’s never been anything else! One big fat self-hating Jewish liberal Democrat! Nothing new! Except that now he confessed!

  2. Bloomberg has said he will “take a look” at a presidential campaign after the midterm elections.
    Here is the translation of that.
    If God forbid the Liberals win and take control then he will run against Trump. If with God’s help the conservatives remain in control then he will not run. Crazy blue me realizes that if Trump has another 2 years to continue doing good for yiden and for the great USA then he’ll lose quicker than Hillary by running against Trump

  3. That’s because he wants to be “President”. Trust me. He sees the democrats being in a very low place and he’s an ibcha mistaber with the Republicans; always was and he absolutely LOVES HIMSELF so he’s becoming a democrat so he can become president.

  4. Shameless opportunist. He only became a Republican so he could run for mayor without needing to primary against all the other Democrats.

    • becoming a republican so he can become popular by feeding off Guilliani’s success.. The city was so safe then. He had the easiest job and took so much credit for the city’s success.. He ended up ruining a lot of what Guilliani has done. But he belongs to be democrat cus he doesn’t see himself or the truth..
