Bloomberg Denies Presidential Bid When Asked About Aide's Travel

During a Q&A in Albany today, reporters tried to ask Michael Bloomberg about Chris Smith’s story that details his former aide’s travel across the country in service of a possible presidential bid.

But all they got was the usual boilerplate denial, which according to a reader who was there, went something like: No matter how many times you ask the question, I’m not a candidate for President.

This reader writes:

“That’s the story. We’re not asking him if he’s a candidate, we’re asking him other questions. Yet, he’s the one saying he’s not a candidate. We’re asking him who’s paying for stuff. He’s answering a question that’s not even asked anymore.” Bloomberg Denies Presidential Bid When Asked About Aide's Travel
