Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will not enter the 2016 presidential race.
Bloomberg flirted with the possibility of entering the race for months. On Monday, the business mogul addressed campaign rumors, saying running as an independent would likely launch Donald Trump or Ted Cruz into the White House.
He wrote, "I love our country too much to play a role in electing a candidate who would weaken our unity and darken our future — and so I will not enter the race for president of the United States."
