Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had a billionaire in his sights at a campaign rally in Iowa Saturday night — and for once, it wasn’t President Trump.
“Tonight we say to Michael Bloomberg, ‘Sorry, you ain’t gonna buy this election,'” Sanders told a crowd in Coralville, outside Iowa City. ” … Those days are gone.”
Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, qualified Friday to get on the ballot in Alabama, which holds its Democratic presidential primary on March 3, 2020, a date known as Super Tuesday. His team is also making plans to file in Arkansas, which has a Tuesday deadline and also holds its primary March 3.
