Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told a reporter Tuesday he “didn’t realize” that Sen. Elizabeth (D-Mass.) was still in the primary race.

His comments came in light of Sen.

"If there's only 3 candidates, you can't do worse than that,” Bloomberg said, when asked if he would accept a third-place finish.

The reporter reminded him that Warren, who currently has eight delegates, is still in the race.

"I didn't realize she's still in, is she?" Bloomberg asked.

At the Las Vegas democratic presidential debate before the Nevada caucuses, Warren was the first to take a swipe at Bloomberg, pointing to his many nondisclosure agreements with women who worked at his company.
