Retired San Antonio Spurs player, Wake Forest University alumni, and Virgin Islands native Tim Duncan recently announced his support for Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, according to a press release from the Bloomberg campaign. Duncan appears in a new TV ad that highlights Bloomberg’s work in the U.S. Virgin Islands after two deadly Category 5 hurricanes hit in 2017.

“I’m Tim Duncan, born and raised in the Virgin Islands,” Duncan says in the ad, “and I’m supporting Mike Bloomberg for president because of his work in 2017 to help the U.S. Virgin Islands recover after we were hit by two Category 5 hurricanes.”

Right after the September, 2017 hurricanes, Duncan and Bloomberg worked side by side on hurricane relief. The ad featuring Duncan began airing in late February.

Duncan’s endorsement comes after Delegate Stacey Plaskett announced her support earlier this month. Bloomberg has opened a campaign office in the territory.
