The 2016 presidential race just got even wackier —if it could— with former New York City Mayor, Michael R. Bloomberg now toying seriously with making a run.
This comes on the heels of rumors that a Stop-Trump movement is quickly gaining steam. Founder of a media empire, Bloomberg could easily match bankrolls with Trump and vows to spend $1 billion if needed.
Bloomberg probably remains sidelined if Hillary Clinton is the nominee. In a Sen. Ted Cruz vs. Bernie Sanders match-up —by itself a scary prospect for the faint of heart—with either Bloomberg or Trump running as third party insurgents, anything could happen.
Meanwhile there is speculation that the one individual who might be called to the rescue if the GOP mega-funders can join forces and who would have a shot at uniting the warring factions, is House Speaker, Paul Ryan.
