nearvideo-Bloomberg embarks on apology tour months after the ribs 2020 Democrats to do the same
The former mayor of NYC and potential 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has apologized for its controversial “stop-and-frisk” policy. Fox News contributor Dan Bongino sounds.
In the latest sign that Mike Bloomberg moves in the direction of a run for the White house and is willing to spend huge sums of money to try and overthrow the President, Trump, the billionaire business-and media-mogul, is a massive television advertising buy, which kicks off on Monday.
After the TV-ad tracking company, advertising Analytics, the former three-term New York City mayor is a purchase, spending at least $12.2 million on an ad in TV markets across the country. The company says it appears the advertising runs for a week.

Ben Taber, an account executive with the company, telling Fox News that it is “to buy a massive display, and it’s still growing.”
Asked by Fox News, a senior Bloomberg adviser to neither confirm nor deny buy reports of the ad.
The move by the likely Democratic presidential candidate comes a week after he went with a separate $100 million digital ad buy to run online ads, the goal-trump the primaries in key General election battleground States.
Advertising Analytics said the first ad buy has been spotted in West Palm Beach, Fla., TV-media market, the home of the President’s winter White House, Mar-a-Lago. The President is expected to spend the Thanksgiving holiday in the next week at the Mar-a-Lago.
Meanwhile, a Democratic candidate in the race-Vermont sen. Bernie Sanders — a damning statement gave rails against the ad buy. “I’m disgusted by the idea that Michael Bloomberg or any other billionaire, you think can bypass the political process and to spend tens of millions of dollars in our elections,” said Sanders.
Bloomberg on Thursday paperwork with the Federal Election Commission filed to run for President. But Bloomberg aides told Fox News, which was not to move an announcement that he will run for President, but just another step in the process.

A Bloomberg adviser told Fox News“ if we had a petition to place on the ballot in Alabama, on 8. November, it is a process started, where we had to file with the FEC within 15 days. This is a further step in the direction, but it is not an announcement, nor a reference to a final decision.”
Bloomberg has now filed to have his name on the presidential primary ballot in Alabama, Arkansas, Michigan, Georgia and Texas.
Bloomberg, a former Republican-turned-independent during his three consecutive terms as New York City mayor changed his voter registration Democrats have in the last year. He flirts with a presidential candidacy early this year, but a run in March is excluded.
But his top advisers, said earlier this month that Bloomberg is not “changed his mind, because he worried that the current crop of 2020 Democratic White house contenders were well-positioned” to beat trump next November.
