Is Democratic Candidate Mike Bloomberg Considering Hillary as Running Mate?
Bloomberg campaign downplays report he is considering Hillary Clinton as running mate …
Billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s presidential campaign on Saturday downplayed a report that he is considering 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as his pick for vice president.
The Drudge Report, citing a source close to Bloomberg’s campaign, reported that Clinton was under consideration after internal polling found that a Bloomberg-Clinton ticket would be a “formidable force.”
But the Bloomberg campaign quickly tamped down that report but fell short of denying it outright.
“We are focused on the primary and the debate, not VP speculation,” Bloomberg communication director Jason Schechter said in a statement.
A source familiar with Clinton’s thinking said the former Secretary of State hasn’t closed the door on politics and would seriously consider joining a VP ticket.
“She wants back in,” the source told Fox News.
