Reviews are in: Mike makes his comeback in tonight's fiery South Carolina debate

NEW YORK — Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg returned to the debate stage tonight to show the nation that he is the only candidate who can unite this party, unite this country, and defeat Donald Trump. Mike presented a clear contrast to the other candidates on stage based on his vision for America and his unmatched executive experience in government, business and philanthropy.

"Mike was in top form tonight. He did not let Bernie off the hook for his radical positions. He stood his ground on issues that matter to voters — from gun safety, to health care, to education. He was the steady leader that New Yorkers have come to know for twenty years," said Mike Bloomberg 2020 Campaign Manager Kevin Sheekey. "Mike's comeback tonight marks the beginning of our final push into Super Tuesday, where he will travel to over a dozen cities across America before voters go to the polls."

Mike's strong performance was reflected across social media tonight as Mike showed America how he will get it done as president:

"Bloomberg just made the pro-Bloomberg case: he had a really hard job as mayor and NYC did well. And it's the first time he's made it in a debate."
Nicholas Thompson, Editor in Chief, Wired

"Mayor @MikeBloomberg continues to cite specific and measurable achievements he accomplished while serving as Mayor of the nation's most diverse city. #DemDebate"
Chris King, Democratic nominee for Lt. Governor, Florida

"Thank you @MikeBloomberg for bringing up a #CoronavirusOutbreak. Let's discuss it now."
Donna Brazile, Former DNC Chair and Fox News Anchor

"A remarkable comeback in #DemDebate for @MikeBloomberg. Good balance between leadership on the issues, exposure of his track record, demonstrating expertise and depth of judgment, and sufficiently defending while moving debate forward. Biden, Buttigieg and Klobuchar also strong."

"See what did I tell you. Bloomberg had a good night. I bet he rises in the polls."
Sasha Stone, Founder and Editor, Awards Daily

"This is a Bloomberg crowd in Carolina. He shoulda competed here."
