HARLEM, Manhattan — As the 2020 presidential election draws near, former New York City mayor and democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg is opening a new office in Harlem as the campaign’s first outpost in the state.

Though Bloomberg will not be present, former Philadelphia Mayor and National Political Chair Michael Nutter and former Manhattan Borough President C. Virginia Fields will be there for the field office opening at 69 E. 125th St as they welcome supporters and volunteers and share why Bloomberg is the best candidate to beat Donald Trump.

The event is part of Day One, a national organizing kickoff for the nationwide campaign to defeat Trump and elect Bloomberg as the President of the United States.

Throughout Saturday, Bloomberg’s 2020 campaign will hold more than 150 voter engagement events across 27 states.

After initially announcing he would not run for president, Bloomberg officially started his presidential campaign on Nov. 24. and declared his candidacy during a campaign event in Virginia.
