The title speaks for itself.
The rumor in NY is that Mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a run for the Presidency with the support of the Independence Party and a personal infusion of cash of up to $1 Billion! Bloomberg spent over $130 million of his own money in his last two successful mayoral elections.
Residents of NY know (the few that care) that when Bloomberg was elected mayor as a Republican after Rudy departed the post due to term limits, he was a true RINO, a democrat liberal. Some months ago (June 2007) the Mayor announced that he was leaving the Republican Party to become an independent. A local radio station here in NY today was espousing the merits of a Bloomberg candidacy with the support of the controversial Independence Party….members include; Dr. Lenora Fulani and Fred Newman (reportedly an avowed Marxist).
The next few days should be interesting. Standby folks.
