By Steve Holland and Valerie Volcovici DES MOINES/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. presidential hopefuls on Sunday offered mixed reviews of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's potential independent White House run, with Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders saying it would add another billionaire like Republican Donald Trump to the field.
