Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is considering a third-party bid for president, telling allies he could spend at least $1 billion to mount the uphill climb, according to the New York Times.

He has reportedly set a final deadline of early March and has asked his aides to create a roadmap for his potential bid. Those efforts include research into state-specific rules on how to appear on presidential ballots and a “detailed study of past third-party bids,” the report says.

If Bloomberg were to run, one plan would have him give a “series of detailed policy speeches” and hit the airwaves with an aggressive push to boost his name recognition and frame him as a “technocratic problem-solver and self-made businessman who understands the economy and who built a bipartisan administration in New York.”

    Why doesn’t he go on a vacation somewhere for a very, very, long time.

    He could help the republicans win by splitting the democrats and liberal leaning independent votes for a democrat. Two or three liberal choices would be awesome and greatly increase republican chances to win. Go Bloomberg finally you would do something good for the USA.

    Hillary is probably paying him with her ISIS money to split the GOP.
