Schwarzman: Sanders’ Rise ‘More Stunning’ Than GOP Primary

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’s popularity “is almost more stunning than some of the stuff going on on the Republican side,” Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman says in interview with Bloomberg Television.

  • “What’s remarkable is the amount of anger, whether it’s on the Republican side or the Democratic side,” Schwarzman says in Davos, Switzerland
  • In separate interview with CNBC, Schwarzman says if the Republican presidential race came down to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, he’d pick Trump
    • “If those are my choices, I’d sort of, you know, I’d be really trying to figure out where we go,” he says
    • NOTE: Schwarzman’s donations this cycle include to Jeb Bush’s campaign
