"Trans people were living openly in the Midwest long before Bloomberg woke up one morning and made a decision to start buying elections", Clymer tweeted Thursday, referring to the billionaire businessman's heavy spending on his presidential campaign. The campaign has also been authorized to hire more staff, said a person familiar with the strategy.

Other attendees, like Todd Westby, were more upbeat about Bloomberg.

Vera Robles Dewitt of Carson, Calif., who also attended the Compton event, said that she admired Mr. Biden and had donated a few hundred dollars to his campaign, but had lost confidence in his ability to defeat Mr. Trump.

"It turns out that a lot of things we thought were true, are true", said Kevin Sheekey, Mr. Bloomberg's campaign manager.

At least eight plans or fact sheets distributed by the Bloomberg campaign copied material from CNN, Time and CBS News, among others, as well as the John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the American Medical Association, all without attribution.

Raimondo, however, said she sees Bloomberg as uniquely qualified for the presidency, especially among the current Democratic field.

They riffed on the campaign slogan "Mike will get it done" and highlighted Bloomberg's record as a businessman, mayor and advocate for causes such as gun-control and the environment.

Bloomberg has already spent $ 275 million on advertisements - more than the first four Democrats in the race have collected. He said the aide answered, "Nothing".

The jab came after the Democratic National Committee scrapped a rule last week requiring that candidates meet a threshold of grassroots donations, opening the door for Bloomberg to participate in a February 19 debate in Nevada. Cesár Blanco, D-El Paso, previously supported the failed presidential bids of both Beto O'Rourke and Julián Castro.

Bloomberg will also be a guest speaker for the Johnson Rayburn Richards awards dinner, hosted by the Harris County Democratic Party, on February 13.

Bloomberg was introduced Tuesday night by former Philadelphia Eagle Dhani Jones, who called the candidate "America's linebacker", and former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, who is the campaign's national political co-chair as well as a paid consultant.
