Rich, bored man Michael Bloomberg is currently mulling a decision to enter the 2016 presidential election as a third party candidate. According to the AP, a decision is coming sometime within the next two weeks.
“Those close to the former mayor acknowledge that a decision must come by the middle of March in order to allow enough time to collect the more than 900,000 signatures needed for Bloomberg to appear on the ballot in all 50 states,” reported the AP.
Bloomberg recently said that he was considering a run because he found, “The level of discourse and discussion distressingly banal and an outrage and an insult to the voters.”
Another reason, of course, is that he can afford to burn through piles of money on what would definitely be a losing effort.
