    From The Hill

    A UK paper is reporting that Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York and billionaire owner of business news network, is planning to running as a Democrat in the 2020 presidential election.

    "Mike Bloomberg told me he is going to run in 2020," a source told The Times. "He has the money to see it through while other candidates knock themselves out."

    Bloomberg considered presidential runs in 2008, 2012 and 2016, amid concerns at the time that he might split Democrat votes.

    Bloomberg considered running as an Independent in the past, but CBS New York reported in June based on two sources that the former mayor would likely run as a Democrat in 2020.

    In January, Bloomberg was unwilling to rule a run out in an interview with MSNBC.

    "I suppose I could," Bloomberg said. "But I have no plans to run for president."

    A spokesperson from Bloomberg's company did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment.

    It's not just a question of if he's running.  In fact, he faces the same question every other Democratic challenger will face.  Can he/she defeat Donald Trump in 2020?  We will have to wait and see what becomes of this news as to whether Bloomberg will run and how far will he go.

    November 2020 is gonna be a bumpy ride, folks!

    Just saying.
