Mike Bloomberg's first stop after debate disaster? Salt Lake City.

Posted at 5:43 PM, Feb 20, 2020

SALT LAKE CITY — Mayor Michael Bloomberg started his post-debate fix-it tour at a rally in Salt Lake City.

“How was your night last night?” was Bloomberg’s line, acknowledging what seemed to be the consensus that his first Presidential primary debate in Las Vegas was disastrous.

“Now I know what it's like to be a Utah fan in Provo during the holy war,” Bloomberg told the Utah crowd.

Bloomberg’s primary strategy hinges on an ad blitz in Super Tuesday states, including Utah. He has foregone participation in the first four contests of the presidential election in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.
