Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg might reconsider a White House bid after ruling out a presidential run earlier this year, according to a report Tuesday in Axios.
Bloomberg announced on March 5 that he would not run for president, writing in a Bloomberg News op-ed that time and money spent on a bruising Democratic primary would be better served continuing his work on climate change and gun control.
However, according to the Axios report, Bloomberg is reconsidering his decision not to run. The article cited “people who have discussed the matter” with him.
Bloomberg is weighing whether the field has an opening for a centrist candidate, according to Axios.
The report comes as Joe Biden deals with accusations that he acted inappropriately toward women.
Biden is thought to be Bloomberg’s main competition for centrist voters.
