Kaminsky endorses Bloomberg

Newsday reports:

State Sen. Todd Kaminsky, a Long Beach Democrat, has endorsed Mike Bloomberg for president, citing the former New York City mayor’s work to combat climate change, pass gun control and help rebuild lower Manhattan in the aftermath of 9/11 …”

Blah, blah, blah …

“… Asked about Bloomberg’s longtime financial support of State Senate Republicans to help keep them in power during his mayoralty, Kaminsky said: “I don’t really know the facts of what happened in the past,” but said there was corruption in both parties and said that Bloomberg probably felt he was doing what’s best for his constituents …”

Nobody believes this.

Can’t Buy Me Love

Politico reports:

Mike Bloomberg’s presidential campaign has brought on more than 700 staffers spread out across 33 states, with a growing number of organizers joining his ranks in states that vote on Super Tuesday, aides told POLITICO. All told, the former New York mayor’s operation totals more than 1,000 people, a figure that includes hundreds of staffers who work out of his Manhattan headquarters. The unprecedented scale and scope of the campaign — he has also spent over $200 million on TV ads — gives Bloomberg a massive footprint in states that hold their primaries on March 3 or later …”

That’s a lot of money. He must be surging in the polls, right?

His Real Clear Polling average for January 3rd through 14th is 6.6%. Compare this to Joe Biden at 27.2%, Bernie Sanders at 19.2% and Elizabeth Warren at 16.0%.

His record as Mayor does not appear to be helping him with Democrats.  I have seen his ads running in the NYC media market.  Why?  After 12 years in office everyone knows who he is.  They obviously don’t think he the man for the job.
