Mike Bloomberg registers as a Democrat – again – as he considers running for president

  • Billionaire and former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg announces on social media that he has re-registered as a Democrat.
  • Bloomberg is considering a run for the White House in 2020.
  • "We need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs," he writes.

Mike Bloomberg is a Democrat. Again.

The billionaire former New York mayor, who is considering a run for the White House in 2020, announced on social media early Wednesday that he re-registered as a member of the Democratic Party. He had previously run for office as a Republican and an independent.

In his Instagram post, Bloomberg cited a need for a check on power in Washington. The Republican Party holds the White House and Congress, and the Supreme Court has a widely perceived conservative majority now that Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed.

In some parts of the country where partisan politics rule, shifting from party to party is not even rare, some do it to make a difference as some parties weild power when in ascendency that the other party does not.  This seems even more common in areas with larger NPA (unaffiliated) percentages, those not in the mainstream majority parties, in order to generate traction for their own personal adgendas by remaining a nominal participant in the dichotomy of a two party system.
