In March, Mike wrote, “I believe I would defeat Donald Trump in a general election,” he added, “But I am clear-eyed about the difficulty of winning the Democratic nomination in such a crowded field.”
Mike has similar ideologies like Biden and Buttigieg. However, these could come out not in favor of these men as this would divide their voters.
