Mark Cuban Floats Presidential Run As Independent

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

“Shark Tank” billionaire Mark Cuban said Thursday he is “seriously considering” running for president and that he might do so as an independent. Cuban was asked about his political aspirations during an appearance at the Venture Atlanta business conference in Georgia.

In recent months, the Dallas Mavericks owner has indicated a presidential run might be in his future. “It is something I’m seriously considering,” Cuban told the Atlanta gathering. Among the factors he’s weighing is his wife’s thoughts on the matter, he said.

“If I was single, I’d definitely be running,” he said. Cuban said he’s an independent. “Maybe I run as an independent. I don’t know.” “I’m for smaller government,” he said, adding that, “I think there is a healthcare solution.”
