Democratic presidential candidate Bloomberg to campaign in Burlington

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) A 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is coming to Vermont next week.

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg will hold a campaign event Monday, Jan. 27, from 12-1:30 p.m. at the Leahy ECHO Center in Burlington.

The billionaire was a late entry to the Democratic field. The former Republican is self-funding his campaign for the presidency.

Democratic National Committee debate rules, which reward candidates for their number of donors, have kept Bloomberg off the debate stage.

Right now, he's polling in single digits nationally.
