Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg opens Spokane office

Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg has opened an office in Spokane.

KXLY-TV reports that Bloomberg opened his second office in the state on Saturday.

Bloomberg’s staff says the office will serve as a base for organizing operations in Washington’s 5th Congressional District.

The wealthy former New York City mayor has been blanketing the Spokane region with television ads attacking President Donald Trump.

Bloomberg state director Grant Lahmann says Bloomberg is committed to mobilizing Democrats across the state, beating President Trump, and building the infrastructure Democrats need to win up and down the ticket in Washington. (AP)
