Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Hotair.com: “Texas big: Houston's mayor endorses Bloomberg, "Mike for Black America"”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Michael Bloomberg’s campaign announced a notable endorsement in Texas on Thursday – that of Houston’s Mayor Sylvester Turner. The battle for African-American voters in Texas is on.

Mayor Turner, an African-American Democrat and thirty-year political career politician will provide a boost to the Bloomberg campaign in the all-important black vote in the Democrat primary. Early voting in Texas begins in just five days. Texas is one of the states that vote on Super Tuesday. 228 pledged delegates in Texas are up for grabs in the primary.

Turner points to Bloomberg’s experience as Mayor of New York City as a plus for running the country. He has supported Bloomberg’s gun-grabbing organization, Every Town for Gun Safety, including participating in public marches for the cause. Like Bloomberg, Turner is a Never-Trumper. Turner also participates in Women’s Marches in Houston. So, his connection to Bloomberg isn’t new. Without a black contender in the primary race, it’s reasonable that Turner chose Bloomberg.

As Mayor, I know that cities are ultimately made up of two things – people and places. We need a president who knows how cities run and who will help create economic opportunity for all.
