Bernie Sanders Says Bloomberg's Moves Toward 2020 Bid Shows 'Billionaire Class Is Scared'



Sen. Bernie Sanders said Thursday night that America's billionaire class is "scared," and rightly so, after numerous outlets reported that former New York City mayor and billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg is actively planning to make a late entry into the 2020 Democratic presidential race.

"The billionaire class is scared and they should be scared," tweeted Sanders, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, apparently in response to news that Bloomberg is expected to file paperwork for his possible 2020 Democratic candidacy in Alabama before the state's Friday deadline.

(snip)

The Sanders campaign quickly seized upon Bloomberg's possible White House bid as evidence that rich Democrats are worried about the prospect of Sanders—who has said he doesn't think billionaires should exist—becoming the Democratic presidential nominee.

(snip)

Progressive activist Jonathan Cohn tweeted Thursday night that "Bloomberg's decision to enter tells us what we already know: Both Sanders and Warren have real paths to victory, and big donors are afraid that Biden increasingly doesn't."

2. Warren and Sanders induce anxiety in billionaires

 

Bloomberg's support will only come from super PACs and self-funding.
