BIRTHDAY OF THE DAY: Mike Bloomberg

How/where are you celebrating your birthday and with whom? “I’ll be coming back from campaigning in Texas and North Carolina — the other candidates aren’t spending much time in either state — and I’ll be looking forward to what I do every year for my birthday: dinner with my family.”

How did you get your start in politics? “I had never been involved in politics, but I got tired of seeing the same problems get worse and no one doing anything to fix them, so I decided to run for mayor of New York City. My campaign was a long shot — I’m not sure even my mother thought I could win — but I’ve always been comfortable being the underdog.”
