Alabama Democrats’ Largest Black Caucus Endorses Bloomberg as His Poll Numbers Rise

The Alabama Democratic Conference (ADC), Alabama Democrats’ largest black caucus, has endorsed Michael Bloomberg for president.

The ADC’s endorsement — announced on Tuesday — came shortly after Bloomberg gave a keynote speech at the 60th annual convention for the conference, and right as his campaign is ascending in the polls.

Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor, has faced tough questions related to his record on minority issues, and the endorsement is a boon for his campaign. It was first reported on by AL.com.

“He has shown a keen interest in the ADC,” Joe L. Reed, the group’s chairman, told AL.com. “He has visited the state twice in the last two months.”

Bloomberg had previously visited Alabama State University where he attacked President Donald Trump during a speech.

“Let’s face it, Donald Trump is the world’s biggest schoolyard bully with no respect for civility or decency or facts or honesty,” Bloomberg told the crowd. “And our party needs a candidate who can go toe-to-toe with him and take the fight to him.”

Along with his visits to Alabama, ADC praised Bloomberg’s business acumen and his experience as mayor of New York City.

News of the endorsement drew mixed reactions in the political world. Bloomberg is facing mounting criticism for past comments disparaging young black men and for his longtime support of stop and frisk, a New York City policing tactic that he’s since apologized for.

It wasn’t the only endorsement for Bloomberg this week, either. He was also endorsed by three black lawmakers, including Gregory Meeks of New York City, where Bloomberg was mayor for 12 years.

Along with the endorsements, Bloomberg also got some good news in the polls this week. A recent Morning Consult poll had him third amongst black voters in the Democratic primary race, trailing only former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). The latest Quinnipiac poll also showed Bloomberg at 15% support in the race, third-best among any Democrat.

  1. Here we have black people who don’t care that the country is doing good things for them. Instead they have been brain washed into thinking that the communist party has all the answers and solutions to their wants and desires. They are supporting. however, a person who is a racist (as all communists, facists, totalitarians and demonrats are) and a liar who will do or say anything, including buying the election, in order to gain power. It is NOT their side that freed them. It is the republicans each and every time who passed the laws necessary to free the black people. The left is racist, hateful, violent and full of criminals who should have been put in prison a long time ago. In fact they would NOT be a party without the violent criminals, they love their criminals. The left IS the party of hate, racism, slavery, Jim Crow, margaret sanger and all other things that are anti-black. Margaret sanger started planned parenthood (infanticide) in the black communities to eradicate the black population because in her mind they were not human (read her book). This is the party of andrew jackson and has never changed it’s beliefs or desires to destroy this nation and make it one party rule (totalitarian rule). They have been trying to do this since before the War of Independence in 1776. They fought against the Declaration of Independence and wanted the king of england to rule over us. The caucus may be on chairman mini boombutt’s side but how many of the black people actually endorse him. The black people are lot smarter than the credit they give them.
