MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg will be in Memphis to campaign ahead of Super Tuesday.

Over the weekend, both Mayor Jim Strickland and former U.S. Congressman Harold Ford, Sr. announced their support for Bloomberg.

In a press release, the Director of the Mike Bloomberg 2020 Tennessee State campaign Courtney Wheeler says Bloomberg is keeping Tennessee on his radar.

Bloomberg has visited Tennessee four times since he announced his presidential campaign 14 weeks ago.

“Our field team connects with voters every day, and it’s clear that they want a president who is committed to working with our local leaders to solve our biggest challenges,” Wheeler said. “It is also clear that Mike is the only candidate with a proven track record of uniting people with differing views and delivering results.”
