Mike Bloomberg was just a small town boy and he wasn’t destined for the big city lights of the presidency.
Michael Bloomberg endorsed Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination as he ended his presidential campaign on Wednesday and pledged to continue working to defeat President Donald Trump.
Bloomberg said in a New York speech that after the results of the Super Tuesday voting, he no longer had a viable path to the nomination and didn’t want to hurt the party’s chances.
He had spent a record $687 million of his own money on the effort, but Biden dominated the Super Tuesday vote, winning 10 states of 14. Bloomberg earned at least 53 delegates, compared to at least 566 for Biden.
“I entered the race for president to defeat Donald Trump,” Bloomberg said. “And today, I am leaving the race for the same reason – to defeat Donald Trump, because staying in would make it more difficult to achieve that goal.”
The former New York mayor said beating Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best chance to do it.
Biden is the man we need for this job.
He’s the man we need for all jobs.
He has ridden in on the backs of the blacks.
But soon, all races will bow down before him.
