DC mayor endorses Michael Bloomberg for president

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has endorsed Michael Bloomberg for president.

“Mike Bloomberg is the only candidate who will unify the country and defeat Donald Trump and has a blueprint to rebuild America and improve the quality of life for all Americans,” Bowser announced in a tweet early Thursday morning.

The endorsement comes about a week after Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City, publicly announced support for D.C. statehood during the United States Conference of Mayors, which draws hundreds of mayors to the District every winter.

All of the top-polling Democrats in the presidential race have also voiced support for D.C. statehood, including Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar.
