Transcript for 2020 Democratic race enters new phase
Terry Moran joins us now from Washington interior still would trump ally accordingly Dow ski earlier this week and I asked him if the president's focus on Bloomberg and those sharp attacks does that mean that that's who he is most concerned about running against you think it's very draw that conclusion. Well I think it's really fair to say the truck is concerned about Bloomberg's money because there's a lot of it Mike Bloomberg is already spent. 380. Million dollars of his own money and there's a lot to go is worth sixty billion he has pledged to spend whatever it takes to defeat trump and even if he doesn't get the nomination. He's it'll continue to spend on anti trump advertisements and the rest so that is a real concern he's also a centrist and could appeal to some prompt voters. But also says that Mike Bloomberg could split the Democratic Party season as as potentially a good opponent. Because he doesn't think it trump doesn't think that the progressive wing of the Democratic Party there's Bernie Sanders voters would ever go four for Mike Bloomberg so it's a bit about. And got NN first visit this is a kind of a bit of a switching and gears up for time because initially he was. Really believes a lot of his attention is attacks on Biden and certainly after those disappointing finishes four other former vice president Iowa in New Hampshire what is sliding trying to do at this point to really revive his campaign. You know that he first I think truck probably feels pretty good about those attacks on Joseph Biden by his candidacy as a lot of problems but one of them was that the president was attacking and now Biden is in trouble and it is all hands on deck for the Biden campaign in the next two states South Carolina. And Nevada those are states where the first. Real voters voting bloc of people of color blacks Latinos will be voting Biden is staking his campaign on that and he has shifted. Many staffers more than fifty staffers. From other states. To really try and ship to shore up that firewall that he says he's got in those states. Some of those staffers come from Super Tuesday states that's that's the big pile of delegates. In March. And it shows the fragility of the Biden campaign and that he doesn't have enough money right now. To make it all happen at once like Mike Bloomberg and other successful candidates all right Terry her and forests from the White House Terry thank you.
