Billionaire Mike Bloomberg's presidential campaign on Saturday downplayed a report that he is considering 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton as his pick for vice president.As the newsboys used to yell, back in the days when boys used to hawk papers on the street, "Extra, Extra! Read all about it" right here: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bloomberg-campaign-downplays-report-he-is-considering-hillary-clinton-for-vp
The Drudge Report, citing a source close to Bloomberg’s campaign, reported that Clinton was under consideration after internal polling found that a Bloomberg-Clinton ticket would be a "formidable force.”
The conservative news aggregator, which came to prominence in the 90s for first reporting the Monica Lewinsky scandal, reported that Bloomberg would consider changing his residence to a home he owns in Colorado or Florida, "since the electoral college makes it hard for a POTUS and VPOTUS from the same state.”
But the Bloomberg campaign quickly tamped down that report but fell short of denying it outright.
"We are focused on the primary and the debate, not VP speculation," Bloomberg communication director Jason Schechter said in a statement.
The spotlight has increased on Bloomberg in recent days as he has shifted up the polls. He entered the race late -- and is skipping the Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire primary, Nevada caucuses, and South Carolina primary --the four early voting states that kick off the nominating calendar in order to focus on the Super Tuesday states in March.
