Democratic Presidential Candidate Mike Bloomberg Opens Edgewater Campaign Office

Democratic Presidential Candidate Mike Bloomberg has opened an Edgewater campaign office as he ramps up his bid to become President.

Though former Republican New York City Mayor Bloomberg was not a part of the Iowa caucuses this week, he is making a campaign push in larger states that will hold elections in the upcoming months including Illinois. He is currently pumping money into our state ramping up ads and increasing staff by 80 people.

Opening this past Tuesday, the new Edgewater office at 1130 W. Bryn Mawr is one of three Chicago spaces rented by Bloomberg to help energize the campaign. He also has a downtown office and another in the Chatham community at 712 E. 87th as well as locations in Springfield, Rockford and the Quad Cities.

Bloomberg officially launched his campaign on November 24, 2019. He started his career in equity trading and designing financial systems using current technology. Last year Forbes Magazine estimated his net worth at $58 billion making him the 14th richest person in the world.
