Newsday: Mike Bloomberg to open field office in Mineola

Posted: Updated:

Democratic presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg is reportedly hoping to court Long Island voters.

Newsday says his campaign is opening a field office next weekend on Old Country Road in Mineola. It will be one of 15 statewide.

The office will have a dozen full-time employees, along with volunteers.

A campaign spokesman says the office will help spread the message that Bloomberg is "the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump."

The 77-year-old billionaire launched his presidential bid at the end of November.
