ORLANDO, Fla. — Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he’s planning to decide by the end of the month whether he’ll seek the presidency.

The 76-year-old businessman, one of the richest men in the world, has been openly contemplating a Democratic White House bid since late last year.


Bloomberg said on Friday he has “three more weeks” to announce his decision.

He also rejected a recent report suggesting he likely would not run if former Vice President Joe Biden enters the race.

Bloomberg’s decision comes as a handful of high-profile Democrats consider joining the 2020 race. Biden and former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke are the most prominent holdouts.
