Michael Bloomberg to Endorse Hillary Clinton

How about that Republican turned Independent?

CNN reported:
  Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent who considered his own presidential run this year, will endorse Hillary Clinton and speak at the Democratic National Convention, a senior Clinton official confirmed to CNN.

Bloomberg's plans were first reported by The New York Times. A senior Clinton campaign official and Bloomberg adviser Marc La Vorgna confirmed his plans to CNN.
"As the nation's leading independent and a pragmatic business leader, Mike has supported candidates from both sides of the aisle. This week in Philadelphia he will make a strong case that the clear choice in this election is Hillary Clinton," senior Bloomberg adviser Howard Wolfson told CNN.

Bloomberg has allied with Democrats in recent years on several issues -- particularly gun control and climate change. He has rebuked Trump over his hard-line stance on immigration.
