This could be a game changer.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he’s considering mounting an independent campaign for president.
The billionaire businessman told the Financial Times he’s found the current campaign to be “an insult to the voters” and that he was “looking at all the options” – when it comes to a bid to become president.
His aides floated the idea last month – that the former New York mayor could fill a gap – in the centre of the political spectrum.
Bloomberg is upset by the rise of Donald Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz among Republicans – and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders among Democrats.
