Michael Bloomberg is considering Hillary Clinton as a running mate, according to the Drudge Report.
The top right-leaning news aggregator, citing sources close to the Bloomberg team, reported on Saturday that the former New York mayor is contemplating Clinton as a vice presidential running mate after his campaign’s polling found the combination would go over well with voters.
Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge said in a rare tweet, which he will likely delete, that the former mayor would go as far as moving his official residence from New York to Colorado or Florida, where he owns homes, so that he and Clinton are not from the same state during the race.
Clinton, a former first lady, senator from New York, and secretary of state in the Obama administration, revealed in November that she was receiving a number of calls urging her to rethink her decision to sit out of the 2020 race. Earlier this month, Clinton said she isn’t running for president, but reluctantly conceded an openness to being on someone else’s ticket. “I never say never because I do believe in serving my country, but it’s not going to happen,” the 72-year-old told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
