Michael Bloomberg Is Running For President – At Least On Paper

Michael Bloomberg is running for president – at least on paper.

While the former New York City Mayor hasn’t yet decided whether to run, he’s doing the paperwork, with his team filing an ‘official statement of candidacy’ with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.

An aide says the paperwork is “another step towards running but not a final decision or announcement.”

Bloomberg has also filed paperwork to qualify for the Alabama and Arkansas primaries, but would likely have to skip out on early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire if he chose to join the race at this late stage.
