Bloomberg, the former Mayor of New York, is supposedly preparing paperwork to appear on Alabama's Democratic primary ballot ahead of Friday's deadline. 

A Bloomberg adviser close to the situation said that the 77-year-old has been cogitating on launching a campaign for several weeks, but hasn't definitively decided if he will or not.

Getting his name on Alabama's ballot, however, allows him more time to make the decision.
