Michael Bloomberg re-registers as a Democrat ahead of 2018 midterm elections

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced on Wednesday morning that he has re-registered as a Democrat, immediately sparking speculation about his intentions to run for president in 2020.

The Jewish billionaire businessman and three-term NY mayor made the announcement early Wednesday morning in a post on Instagram.

In June, Bloomberg reportedly said at a fundraiser that he's "revving up" for 2020.

He considered running for president as an independent in 2016 but ultimately endorsed Hillary Clinton.

Bloomberg told Buzzfeed News this week that "elections are about swings". He left the Republican Party to become an independent in 2007 and served three terms as New York's mayor, stepping down in 2013.

He had been a registered Democrat before winning mayoral elections as a Republican and an Independent.

"I'm working on this November 6 election, and after that I'll take a look at it", he told the Times. He has vowed to spend at least $100 million - $80 million on House races and $20 million on Senate races. "I believe I could win a number of diverse states - but not enough to win the 270 Electoral College votes necessary to win the presidency".
