Bloomberg to Launch National Jewish Voter Coalition Today (Miami Herald)

After a meeting in Tampa with mayor Jane Castor this morning, Mike Bloomberg will host a kickoff event this afternoon in Miami for “United for Mike,” a coalition of Jewish Americans proudly supporting Mike because they know he is the leader to end the chaos of the Trump presidency. 

Mike will discuss his Jewish upbringing and the values his parents instilled in him, his commitment to Israel, and the strong action he will take as president to reduce the number of anti-Semitic attacks and hate crimes. 

Watch the livestream here at 4pm EST. 
 

The campaign is preparing to open 20 offices across the Sunshine State, and expects to have 70 staffers in the state starting next week.

“Florida is a key state," said Scott Kosanovich, the Bloomberg campaign’s Florida state director. "We know Donald Trump has no pathway to be reelected that doesn’t go through Florida."

“No other campaign is building an infrastructure like this,” Kosanovich said.

Ignoring Bloomberg's Record to Endorse Others Made No Sense (The Hill — Judge Judy)

I fervently believe Mike Bloomberg is the only presidential candidate qualified by governing experience and personal history to lead the United States of America in 2020.

As mayor, he made decisions based on what he thought was best for the people he represented, not on the relentless pressures of special-interest politics. He was and is beholden to no one. Read the entire column here.
