MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg will be in Montgomery Saturday.
Bloomberg is scheduled to address the Alabama Democratic Conference between noon and 2 p.m. He will serve as the keynote speaker for the Kennedy-Johnson-King Luncheon at the 60th Annual Convention of the Alabama Democratic Conference at the Embassy Suites Hotel.
According to ADC, Bloomberg’s campaign has more than 30 staff on the ground, with plans to open additional offices and hire more staff across the state.
“We welcome and appreciate Mr. Bloomberg’s visit,” said ADC Chairman Joe Reed. “He has been a successful businessman, mayor for 12 years, and strong supporter of Democrats. He has supported numerous philanthropic causes worldwide.”
