New York billionaire Mike Bloomberg’s presidential campaign strategy is unprecedented and so is his choice of a Utah rally location to bounce back from an unsteady debate performance. He was in Salt Lake City on Thursday, where Democrats are fired up about new attention from candidates courting their votes on Super Tuesday for the first time. Bloomberg found a friendly audience of hundreds who were laser-focused on the effort to defeat Donald Trump. He would rather talk about that than his widely criticized debate performance. Bloomberg hopes his well-funded Utah campaign can sway moderate independent voters, disaffected Republicans and undecided Democrats.
