Kevin Sheekey ran Michael Bloomberg’s New York City mayoral campaigns in 2001 and 2005. He is considered the former mayor’s top political adviser. And in the aftermath of the New Hampshire primary, he is fueling rumors behind the $39 billion question in presidential politics: Will Michael Bloomberg run for president?
As he did in 2008, Sheekey is pushing the issue. Early Wednesday morning, with the results of New Hampshire still sinking in, Sheekey tweeted a New York Post story making the case for a Bloomberg candidacy.
“Sanders, Trump wins could open door for Bloomberg,” the headline reads.
One thing is clear, the campaign for a campaign, is on.
