REPORT: Michael Bloomberg Campaign Offered Andrew Yang VP Slot In Exchange For Endorsement

Michael Bloomberg is looking for support just about everywhere.

Apparently, he even asked Andrew Yang for his endorsement in exchange for the VP slot. The Bloomberg campaign says this was never seriously discussed but it’s not hard to believe, is it?

The Hill reports:

Bloomberg campaign lobbied Yang for endorsement, possible VP offer: report

Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s campaign has reached out to former Democratic presidential primary candidate Andrew Yang seeking an endorsement, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

The Journal reported that aides from Bloomberg’s camp reached out to the entrepreneur to gauge his interest in working to help Bloomberg win the Democratic nomination.

Another source told the Journal that Yang, who dropped out of the primary race last month, was noncommittal in his response.

While the Journal’s sources said that the idea of Yang being Bloomberg’s running mate was thrown around, a separate senior Bloomberg aide said that Yang was never seriously being considered.

The report, citing a person familiar with the discussions, added that Yang did not commit to joining forces with Bloomberg, while a senior Bloomberg aide told the paper that Yang was not being seriously considered to join Bloomberg on the Democratic ticket should the former mayor win the nomination.

A source close to Yang told Fox News Tuesday that Bloomberg and Yang spoke after Yang dropped out of the Democratic race following the New Hampshire primary earlier this month, but could not confirm that the conversation touched on any kind of endorsement.

Yang was skeptical of Bloomberg’s prospects when the former mayor entered the race this past November.

Bloomberg hasn’t really lived up to the hype, has he?
