Billionaire Mike Bloomberg, a late entrant into the Democratic presidential race, is slated to campaign in Detroit on Saturday. He’ll be opening up his Michigan campaign headquarters in Eastern Market.
Bloomberg, a philanthropist and former New York mayor, will be on Michigan’s March 10 presidential primary ballot. He has been blanketing the airwaves with TV ads in Michigan since he announced in late December. He’s also advertising heavily in other states to the tune of $100 million already.
He’s been active in Michigan politics in previous cycles, with his political action committee giving to GOP former Gov. Rick Snyder in 2014 and now-U.S. Reps. Haley Stevens (D-Rochester Hills) and Elissa Slotkin (D-Holly) last year.
