Bloomberg Dropped Over $100 Million for Dems In Texas, Ohio, & Florida - Trump Won All

Former New York City mayor and failed 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg lost big on election night. Imagine spending $100 million and getting nothing in return.

Literally.

Nothing.

From The Daily Wire:

In the weeks leading up to the election, Bloomberg announced that he would be spending $100 million to ensure Florida voted for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. As The Daily Wire previously reported, Bloomberg said in mid-September that the buy was due to tightening polls in the Sunshine State.

“Howard Wolfson, one of Mr. Bloomberg’s closest aides, said the former mayor had recently asked his team to run a round of polls to see whether Mr. Trump had unexpected vulnerabilities that could be exploited in the campaign’s closing weeks. Up to this point, Mr. Bloomberg’s general-election activities have focused on Florida, where he has pledged to spend $100 million supporting Mr. Biden,” The New York Times reported at the time. “The Bloomberg team conducted polling in a number of states over the weekend and came away convinced that Texas and Ohio represented its best targets — narrowly divided electoral prizes where the war for television airtime is not already cluttered with heavy advertising on either side. The team presented Mr. Bloomberg with the numbers on Monday morning and he gave the go-ahead.”

$100 million is obviously a lot.

The thing is, though, Bloomberg blew $1 billion (of his own cash) on his presidential campaign earlier this year.

Must be nice to be a billionaire, huh?
