Washington, DC (Rotters) – One day after New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg renounced his affiliation with the Republican Party, he put to rest speculations of an independent run for the presidency by today announcing that he had officially registered with the Connecticut for Lieberman Party. Speaking at a press conference with Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, Bloomberg announced the formation of an official exploratory committee that will look into the possibility of an independent run for the presidency with Lieberman as vice presidential running mate.
An exploratory committee spokesperson stated that all options were on the table in the bid to have Bloomberg become the first Independent party candidate elected president, in a field of 20 plus and counting Republican and Democratic contenders.
“We have been approached by a number of very creative sources in regards to funding,” stated the committee spokesperson. “Former RNC chair Ken Mehlman has been very generous with offers of support.”
“It’s high time the American public ceased to view independent candidates as spoilers, and take a good hard look at what it is they seem to believe is being spoiled,” stated a CFL spokesperson.
