Bloomberg ‘Absolutely Not’ Dropping Out, But Will ’Assess’ Bloomberg Campaign Manager Kevin Sheekey shot down speculation that his candidate will exit the race today, but contradicted Mike Bloomberg’s comments earlier today that he was willing to wage a convention fight for the nomination. “Absolutely not,” Sheekey told reporters about reports that Bloomberg was being advised to exit the race tonight. He said the campaign would assess where it stands after Super Tuesday. “I think you make an assessment in any campaign like this after every time that there’s a vote. We have not had a vote yet so we have not had to assess.” Sheekey directly contradicted Bloomberg’s statement in Miami today that his only path to the nomination was a contested convention—a fight he was willing to wage. “I don’t happen to think Democrats will have a contested convention,” Sheekey said, “I heard him, and that may be true, it may not.” He added: “As of right now we’re committed to stay in [until the convention] but we’ll see what happens today.”

Democratic Voters Unhappy With Idea Of Bloomberg As Nominee-AP VoteCast Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg has spent millions of dollars in an aggressive bid for the Democratic presidential nomination — but according to AP VoteCast data, a large share of Democratic primary voters say they would be dissatisfied if he were the nominee. Roughly 60% of voters in Minnesota, Colorado and Massachusetts — three of the 14 states that vote on Super Tuesday — say they would be dissatisfied if Bloomberg is the party’s nominee to take on President Trump, according to VoteCast. About half the voters in North Carolina and Virginia said they would not be happy with the pick, said VoteCast, which is a survey of the American electorate conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. Former Vice President Joe Biden was projected to win both those states on Tuesday.
