A political meeting in Norman is getting national attention. 

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will attend the meeting on January 7th, but he's denying rumors he wants to run for President.

"Look, I'm not running for president," Bloomberg said. "What I am trying to do is speak out and push what I think we need and that's an independent approach, where we get rid of partisanship and special interests and we stop this gridlock that you see in Washington where no one's willing to do anything unless it's in their selfish interests."

Bloomberg was invited to next Monday's meeting by OU President David Boren.
