(PoliticalLookout.com)- Michael Bloomberg, the New York City billionaire notoriously envious of President Donald Trump’s 2016 win, has vowed to spend $100 million in Florida to beat the president and help his former rival, Joe Biden. The failed presidential candidate, who pumped roughly $1 billion of his own cash into a vanity campaign in the Democratic Party that went nowhere, has vowed to use his financial resources to help the far-left Biden campaign win in the state.
The media mogul said on Sunday that he’d be willing to spend as much as $100 million in Florida so that Biden can spend campaign resources on winning other states. Politico reported the story on Sunday, indicating that Bloomberg made the decision as polls began to tighten in the state that Trump won in 2016.
“The infusion of cash comes as polls indicate a tightening race between Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who are deadlocked in a recent Marist Poll, and as Floridians start voting by mail at the end of the month,” Politico reported.
Presumably, any new advertising push in Florida using Bloomberg’s money would start soon as Democrats will hope that people use the mail-in voting system to start casting their ballots for Joe Biden before they see him debate President Donald Trump.
Let’s face it, everyone is predicting that Joe Biden will be destroyed by Trump in the debates.
A press release from the Independence USA political committee run by Bloomberg, which was sent to the Washington Post, claimed that the money would be specifically used for communicating to Hispanic voters through digital and TV advertisements.
Interestingly, there has not been much of a push back from the Democrats in taking his money. Many took issue with him during his presidential run owing to the fact he was using his vast fortune to pay for his campaign, with Senator Elizabeth Warren going as far as suggesting he was trying to buy his way to the presidency.
“Michael Bloomberg is making a bet about democracy in 2020,” she said, back when she thought she could win. “He doesn’t need people, he only needs bags and bags of money. I think Michael Bloomberg is wrong.”
Does Elizabeth Warren still think it’s dirty money, now that the stakes are higher?
