The electromagnetic force and the gravitational force are both infinite range forces, and in fact are mathematically identical in the classical approximation. So if you had (for example) a cloud of nega-protons (or some equivalent positive electric-charge particles), their like electric charges would repel each other against a negative-inertia, causing them to be effectively attracted to one another. Since electromagnetism is orders of magnitude stronger than gravity, negative mass should theoretically be able to clump thru electromagnetic forces.

The color-charge of the Strong Nuclear Force is very short-range, however, despite being the strongest of all of the 4 forces.
