That's what I was wondering. How can we find out if he actually ran as a Republican. But then RINOs are the same as Dems.
Was not Mayor Bloomberg originally elected as a Republican? "Reformed" Democrat? Now "independent"?
In reality it seems Bloomberg's always been a "prince", a little Napoleon, even a Machiavelli, if you will.
It occurs to me that the progressive Democrats and far-left liberals benefit immensely from these "Trojan horse" (NOTE capital T on "Trojan"...no pun intended) GOP'ers...they are no sort of "RINO's", they are either agents of the left, or seriously greedy and narcissistic individuals, IMHO. Say anything to get elected. Some even for the purpose of "tarring" the "GOP brand", I'm sure, because they will be taken care of, and what's a little "disgrace" amongst the "bitter clingers", after all...
