Bloomberg plans to spend at least $100 million in Florida to support Biden

Billionaire and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is planning to spend at least $100 million in the crucial battleground of Florida in support of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, a source familiar with the plans confirmed to CNN. Last week a NBC News/Marist College poll showed the race in a dead heat in the Sunshine State with Biden and President Donald Trump each garnering support of 48% of likely voters. "Mike Bloomberg is committed to helping defeat Trump, and that is going to happen in the battleground states. Mike's substantial investment in Florida, in addition to his contributions to the DNC and to voter protection and restoration efforts this cycle, will mean Democrats and the Biden campaign can invest even more heavily in other key states like Pennsylvania, which will be critical to a Biden victory," top Bloomberg adviser Kevin Sheekey told CNN. The Washington Post, which first reported Bloomberg's expected expenditure, said the one-time Democratic presidential candidate decided to put in that large of an amount in Florida after it was reported in the New York Times and later confirmed by Trump that he is prepared to spend millions in support of his reelection effort, according to advisers.

With the funding news, Bloomberg's team is sending a signal to Biden and other Democrats that they can spend their money elsewhere, announcing publicly what they can't coordinate privately. The move also allows that to happen without observers seeing the Biden campaign move resources elsewhere and think they're giving up on Florida. One area of concern for Democrats is Biden's current under-performing among Florida Hispanics. The NBC/Marist survey showed Trump garnering 50% of the Latino vote in the state. When asked if the focus of his effort will be Latino voters, one Bloomberg adviser said. "We'll talk to every constituency important to winning FL, Latino voters clearly a focus. Will be a mix of direct spending, gifts to Democratic super Pacs, and FL political efforts already underway." Biden adviser Symone Sanders told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that the campaign knows "that we have work to do" to win the support of Latino voters. She pointed to recent events featuring both Biden and Harris in Florida and Arizona, both states with significant Latino populations, "because we're committed to doing the work."

Important for Biden in Florida is the Hispanic vote which is primarily in south Florida, especially the votes of Hispanics with Cuban ancestry. Owing to Trump/GOP propaganda, many in this community look at Joe Biden as a socialist, and they equate socialism with the Castro regime. So a good chunk of Bloomberg's money will probably be devoted to showing Florida Hispanics how terribly bigoted and cruel the Trump administration has been to Hispanics both within and without the United States.

His money, his choice. I don't think I'd spend that much on an election, even if I had it, but far be it for me to say he's wrong.

I wonder if all the liberals who whined about Citizens United and corporate influence, are happy with this sort of fat cat spending? Bloomberg proves why he was unfit to be president with this sort of activity.

Hilarious but if one is going to tell a lie, you might as well tell a whopper

Between Bloomberg, Soros, the Koch Brothers (whoever is left of them,) and everyone else with a plethora of money to spend... tell me again about buying elections.

In other words, Bloomberg is going to spend $100 million to tell lies, hoping the Florida Hispanics will believe him.

My question is this: Why has it come to this? Hasn't the Trump hating media been effective enough with THEIR lies? If they haven't, isn't Bloomberg satisfying the conditions for insanity? You know...keep doing the same things hoping for a different outcome.

But hey...it's his money. He has the right to waste it if he wants to.
