Billionaire 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg has now qualified to attend the Nevada debate tomorrow after a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.
According to his campaign manager, he will attend and be there.
Some analysts believe choose to debate could be a risky move for Bloomberg, as the other 2020 candidates are likely to pile on against him, accuse him of trying to buy the election, and expose his weaknesses.
TheHill reports Democratic presidential contender Michael Bloomberg is set to join the Democratic presidential primary debate on Wednesday after he qualified for the forum with the release of a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll.
“Mike is looking forward to joining the other Democratic candidates on stage and making the case for why he’s the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump and unite the country,” Bloomberg’s campaign manager, Kevin Sheekey, said in a statement. “The opportunity to discuss his workable and achievable plans for the challenges facing this country is an important part of the campaign process.”
Bloomberg did not qualify for the past debates due to the self-funding of his campaign. Instead, he has relied on deploying high-dollar ad buys across the country in an effort to rise in the polls.
During a recent segment of his show, Tucker Carlson accused Bloomberg of trying to buy the election.
