Now, Bernie has officially stated that he won’t take Bloomberg’s support if he received the nomination. The former mayor of NYC has said that he’d continue to support the DNC nominee who would take on President Trump. However, the Vermont senator won’t accept his help, even if it was spent on his behalf and not donated to the campaign. As Sanders put it, “It’s a hard no.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has also aligned with Bernie’s stance on taking aid from Bloomberg, even if she were to have a future presidential bid. She believes that, not only does she not need the money, but taking Bloomberg’s money is bad optics.
