Bloomberg Campaign, Terminal

“The former New York mayor was previously rumored to be seeking the White House in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.” So it’s not all that surprising that Michael Bloomberg opted out of this year’s free-for-all. What’s even less surprising was the reason he gave. He didn’t want help elect a President Trump. It seems obvious that this would have been the outcome of a Bloomberg third-party run, but if you want to see the numbers behind the thinking, Nate Silver has them.

+ Today, all eyes will be on Michigan as primaries there could have an impact on both presidential races.

+ “There was an emerging consensus that Trump is vulnerable and that a continued blitz of attacks could puncture the billionaire mogul’s support and leave him limping onto the convention floor.” Inside the meetings where politicians, pundits and CEOs gathered to try to figure out a way to stop Trump (and better understand how he happened).

+ The Internet is weird. And sometimes, it requires an explanation. Ted Cruz’s secret life as the Zodiac Killer might be one of those times.
