Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Wednesday that he has changed his voter registration to Democrat, suggesting he is inching closer to announcing a presidential run in 2020.

"At key points in US history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution", he wrote on Instagram.

Former Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, is making the move to blue before midterm elections in a month, according to CBS News and Bloomberg's Instagram page.

On September 17 he said he would only run for president as a Democrat, Time Magazine reported.

The announcement came as the billionaire media mogul has emerged as a top financial backer of the Democratic Party during the pivotal 2018 midterm congressional races, pledging almost $100 million to Democratic candidates and causes.

He said: "I don't see how you could possibly run as a Republican".

Last week Bloomberg announced that he will donate $20 million to the Senate Majority PAC to support Democratic candidates for the US Senate. He weighed running for the presidency in 2016 but ultimately endorsed Hillary Clinton in a high-profile speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Bloomberg was previously a member of the Democratic party but switched in 2001 to run for NY mayor as a Republican. "So if you ran, yeah, you'd have to run as a Democrat". He apparently changed sides, however, in 2001 to run for New York City mayor as a Republican after Rudolph Giuliani came up against the term limit.
