Arkansas: Michael Bloomberg has filed paperwork to appear on the ballot in Arkansas' 3 March presidential primary.

The billionaire former New York mayor hasn't formally announced a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. But his trip to Arkansas on Tuesday is the latest indication that he is leaning toward a run.

Bloomberg sent staffers to Alabama last week to file for the primary there.

He's moving toward a presidential bid as he warns that the current field of Democratic presidential candidates isn't equipped to defeat President Donald Trump next year.

Bloomberg plans to skip the traditional early-voting states and focus more on Super Tuesday states, including Arkansas and Alabama.
