Michael Bloomberg may be non existent in primary races, debates and even polls. But that’s because he can be. He’s got another strategy for winning: buying super delegates.
Slowly but surely, Mike Bloomberg is bribing as many super delegates and Democratic party leaders as he can get. And it’s working. Endorsements from establishment democrats nationwide are pouring in.
Across America, everyone from former to current mayors to local house reps to established party leaders are endorsing Bloomberg. In Michigan alone, he’s received the endorsement of Rep. Haley Stevens, former Michigan hispanic caucus chair Larry Arreguin, former Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, former Adrian Mayor and local party boss Jim Berryman, Detroit councilperson Roy McCalister, Jr, Van Buren town sueprvisor Kevin McNamara, Former Inkster Mayor Byron Nolen, Kent County Commissioner Phil Skaggs, former Flint Mayor Karen Weaver, Romulus City councilperson Virginia Williams. The list goes on.
And in Rochester, New York, Democratic Mayor Lovely Warren came out endorsing the soda tyrant as well.
Houston Mayor and longtime Democrat Sylvester Turner also has endorsed Bloomberg. Turner is the Mayor of America’s 4th largest city. From South Carolina to California to Louisiana, establishment Democrats are slowly trickling in behind Bloomberg. And with that, Bloomberg is throwing money into Democratic party coffers EVERYWHERE. The DNC, which was going broke leading up to this election, received hundreds of thousands from Bloomberg before he got into the race. and local democratic parties are feeling the bloomberg effect too; party war chests are being filled.
Why is he ignoring voters and going straight for superdelegates? Because if no democratic candidate gets enough delegates in the primaries, then it was lead to a brokered convention. And that’s where Bloomberg plans to win. Superdelegates are either members of the Democratic National Committee, elected officials serving as a governor or member of Congress, and distinguished party leaders.
Unlike at-large or district-level delegates, they are neither elected by Democratic presidential primary voters nor required to pledge their support to a specific presidential candidate. Beginning with the 2020 presidential election, they are prohibited from voting on the first ballot at a contested national convention.
In 2020, there will be an estimated 764 superdelegates. The Democratic National Committee is expected to confirm the names of the automatic delegates by state no later than March 6, 2020. If Bloomberg wants to win, this is his path towards it.
