Bloomberg supposedly considering Hillary Clinton as Running Mate

One of the top five Democrat candidates for president is now considering Hillary Clinton as his running mate for vice president. It was Mike Bloomberg whose campaign made this information available to the Drudge Report.

The source, who's name is unknown, stated that a Bloomberg/Clinton combination "would be a formidable force to take on Trump in the race for the White House,"  as stated on Daily Mail.

Former New York City Mayor and Democratic candidate Bloomberg is said to be considering even changing his official residence from New York to Colorado or Florida - where he also has homes - because the electoral college makes it difficult for US president and vice-president to reside in the same state.


Under the Twelfth Amendment to the US Constitution, which provides the procedure for electing the president and vice-president, it states that the two people could not both inhabit the same state as the elector.     

One thing to take into consideration is that Mike Bloomberg has not officially announced his running mate, so this information, especially from a source with no name, should be taken with a grain of salt.

When a candidate considers someone for vice president, it doesn't really mean anything. It only matters when they make an official decision stating who their vice president candidate actually is.


Bloomberg's campaign would not confirm or deny the reports when reached out for comments.  

'We are focused on the primary and the debate, not VP speculation,' Communications Director Jason Schechter said in a statement.

According to the Daily Mail, the campaign Communications Director for Bloomberg has not confirmed or denied this and they even made a comment about the VP speculation.

Vote now to REMOVE Pelosi from GOVT!

What this really means is that no one really knows who Bloomberg would select as his running mate. Bloomberg still has to win the nomination for the DNC, so he has quite a way to go before a vice president is considered.

On the contrary, if he and Clinton link up, then there's a good chance that Clinton's former fan-base could latch onto the Bloomberg/Clinton card and give Trump a run for their money.

This election could be even more interesting than the last one.
