Bloomberg fails to file for Nevada Democratic caucuses

Politico

LAS VEGAS — Nevada Democrats will not be able to caucus for Michael Bloomberg next month.

The former New York City mayor and Democratic presidential candidate failed to file with the Nevada State Democratic Party by a Jan. 1 deadline, the party announced Thursday morning.

Bloomberg is intending to bypass the four early voting states, including Nevada, which will be third to express a preference on the Democratic presidential field. Instead, he has his hopes hinged on other states, including California, where a large number of delegates are up for grabs.

Bloomberg’s failure to file with Nevada Democrats means his name won’t appear on preference cards during the Feb. 22 caucus and four days of early caucusing. Caucus attendees stand in groups to express their top candidate choices and also fill out preference cards to provide a record of their choice. There’s no write-in option available.


Bloomberg has been clear that he isn't going to compete until Super Tuesday. That said, I don't know why a Caucus system won't allow Bloomberg supporters to count themselves and see if they're viable.

1. Ah, the Rudy Guiliani strategy.

 

Bloomberg is clearly a smart guy, but I can't get why he thinks waiting till Super Tuesday is going to work.

2. 2/3rds of all delegates will be up for grabs after the early states soak up the front runners cash

 

...with pittance returns for early states by everyone else , so split votes likely

then he puts on media ad blitz like never seen before...he plans on totally out spending everyone for a month and bulldoze his way in

At least that's what I gather from news reports
