FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Mike Bloomberg’s Decision to Suspend His Presidential Campaign

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to former Mayor of New York City, Mike Bloomberg’s (D-N.Y.) announcement today that he will suspend his 2020 Presidential Campaign, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Mike Bloomberg’s decision today to suspend his campaign demonstrates that his brand of nanny-state totalitarianism does not resonate even with self-avowed socialists. Bloomberg, and Sen. Warren’s round of Super Tuesday defeats indicate that Democrats have an authenticity problem. Voters want a genuine candidate who speaks to them about the issues that matter, much like President Trump has done, rather than restrictions on soda serving size. Lastly, Bloomberg’s reportedly endless financial advantage begs the question: will Mayor Mike make good on his word and continue to pay his campaign staff’s salaries through November?”
