Michael Bloomberg is traveling to Cincinnati this weekend to talk about ways to reduce poverty, the mayor’s press office just announced.
For those keeping track, it’s his third trip to a battleground state two months, and whether or not some people still seriously consider him as a viable presidential running mate, it will certainly keep him in the spotlight. He’ll be talking to a convention of the NAACP, where, according to the official announcement from City Hall, he will “unveil a new alternative to the Federal poverty measure that was developed over the last year by the City’s Center for Economic Opportunity.”
In June, Bloomberg was in Florida defending both candidates against "whisper campaigns." Later this month he’s going to Minnesota to fund-raise for the Independence Party.
