Billionaire Bloomberg To Spend $100 Million For Biden In Key Swing State

Failed Democrat presidential candidate and multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg will be shoveling his money into a key battleground state with the goal of putting Joe Biden into the White House.
The former New York City mayor who ranked number 16 in the Forbes 2020 list of the richest people on the planet is determined to defeat President Trump and will be spending big in Florida to influence the vote.
Bloomberg's big investment comes after Trump who is himself a billionaire said that he could invest $100 million of his own money into his reelection campaign, a development first reported by the venomously anti-Trump Washington Post.
Mini-Mike's millions would offset the amount that Trump would spend and level the playing field for the media to drag the corpse that is Joe Biden across the finish line like a sequel to Weekend At Bernie's.
Via Bloomberg News, "Michael Bloomberg to Spend $100 Million in Florida to Aid Biden":
Michael Bloomberg said Sunday he would spend $100 million in Florida to help Joe Biden defeat President Donald Trump in the crucial battleground, which would allow Democrats to divert money to Pennsylvania and other must-win states.
The money will be spent on voter-turnout efforts, and communicating with Hispanic voters will be a key part of that strategy, a Bloomberg spokesperson said.
Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.
Bloomberg, who endorsed Biden after ending his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in March, is making the pledge as the Cook Political Report on Thursday moved the state from “lean Democrat” to “toss up.”
Biden holds a slim, 1.2 percentage-point advantage over Trump in Florida, according to RealClearPolitics average of recent polls.
It would be difficult for Trump to win re-election without carrying Florida and its 29 electoral votes, especially if he loses Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, all states where Biden is leading. Biden, however, must improve his margin with Latino voters if he expects to carry the state. He’s going to Florida on Tuesday.
Trump responded via his weaponized Twitter account on Sunday, mocking Bloomberg for his pissing away of $200 million on his dumpster fire of a campaign and then twisting the knife by reminding "Mini-Mike" of how Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren emasculated him during the debates.
Per the POTUS:
"I thought Mini Mike was through with Democrat politics after spending almost 2 Billion Dollars, and then giving the worst and most inept Debate Performance in the history of Presidential Politics. Pocahontas ended his political career on first question, OVER! Save NYC instead."
Bloomberg's hidden hand has already been revealed with the report that the data firm Hawkfish which he funds predicts that election night results will show a huge Trump win but that subsequent numbers by "cheat-by-mail" will erase the president's lead and result in a Biden victory.
As an integral part of the Democrat machine, Bloomberg will backstop the late push to steal the election although it may take more than $100 million to swing Florida to Biden as the Sunshine State is Trump country.
