Former Republican/Independent New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg addressed the Democratic National Convention tonight, making the pitch for Hillary Clinton to independent voters.
"You know, when the founding fathers arrived here in Philadelphia to forge a new nation, they didn't come as Democrats or Republicans, or to nominate a presidential candidate," Bloomberg said. "They came as patriots who feared party politics, and I know how they felt."
They felt the same way an increasing number of Americans who don't affiliate with a major party do.
