REPORT: Bloomberg Camp Pitched Yang For VP Slot

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Michael Bloomberg’s presidential campaign has made overtures to Democrat Andrew Yang, courting the former candidate’s endorsement and floating the possibility of Mr. Yang becoming his running mate, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

Bloomberg, a latecomer to the race, hasn’t been on any of the ballots in the first three primaries and won’t be on the ballot for South Carolina either. But, he’s spent almost half a billion dollars on advertisements and campaign efforts in the crucial Super Tuesday states.

Bloomberg’s campaign is downplaying the report.
