Socially Liberal, Fiscally Conservative Bloomberg Will Endorse Clinton

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to endorse Hillary Clinton and to speak at the upcoming Democratic National Convention.
Bloomberg — who was considering his own run for president earlier this year — is an independent with a history of switching parties. He was a Democrat until he ran for mayor and switched to the Republican Party, which he also later left.
Bloomberg has said he bases his endorsement decisions on how candidates align with the issues he cares about, not which party they belong to.
