Rising White House hopeful Michael Bloomberg has been taking heavy fire from fellow Democratic rivals hours ahead of a live TV debate.

The forum in Nevada is the first major test for the former New York City mayor after a late entry to the race.

The tycoon is under fierce attack over everything from his wealth and health to past remarks on race and gender.

The eventual Democratic nominee will face President Donald Trump, a Republican, in November’s election.

Also on stage in Wednesday night’s debate in Las Vegas will be Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, former US Vice-President Joe Biden, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Massachusetts Senator and former South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigieg.

A new Washington Post-ABC poll on Wednesday showed Mr Sanders at 32% with Mr Biden falling to 16%. Mr Bloomberg was third on 14% and Ms Warren fourth on 12%.

The attacks from Mr Bloomberg’s Democratic rivals suggest it will be a tough night for the world’s ninth richest man.
