Bloomberg, now 76, considered presidential runs in 2008, 2012 and 2016, amid concerns at the time that he might split Democrat votes. 


Bloomberg considered running as an Independent in the past, but CBS New York reported in June based on two sources that the former mayor would likely run as a Democrat in 2020. 

In January, Bloomberg was unwilling to rule a run out in an interview with MSNBC.

“I suppose I could,” Bloomberg said. “But I have no plans to run for president.”
