News 12 gets a first look at Bloomberg's White Plains field office

Posted: Updated:

In early 2019 there were nearly two dozen Democrats running for president, and former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg was not one of them.

In his first sit down interview since signing on as the director of Bloomberg's presidential campaign in New York, well-known political veteran John Calvelli gave News 12 deeper insight into what's being referred to as the best-funded, least traditional campaign in the history of American politics.

At the campaign's just-opened field office in White Plains, Calvelli admitted they are counting on a 'home-court advantage.’

“What many people don't know is that New York has the second largest number of delegates after California,” said Calvelli.

The former three-term NYC mayor already spent more than $250 million on a national TV ad blitz, leading to a slew of tweets by the president.

In less than 10 weeks, Calvelli said Bloomberg jumped from the bottom of the list to the top five most popular presidential candidates in nearly every national poll.

“Bottom line is something is happening,” said Calvelli.
