Bloomberg Won’t File For New Hampshire Primary

The Associated Press reports:

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg may be weighing a run for president, but he won’t be on the ballot in the New Hampshire primary. Bloomberg’s team says the billionaire media mogul will not file in the state ahead of a Friday deadline to get on the ballot.

Bloomberg is still deciding whether to launch a campaign, a move he’s considered several times in the past. But he’s gone farther than ever before, already filing to be on the ballot in Alabama and Arkansas, states holding their primaries March 3, or Super Tuesday.

If he does run, his advisers have said he would skip early contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina and instead focus on the crush of states that vote on March 3 and beyond.
