Bloomberg Pouring In $100 Million To Help Biden Win This Key Electoral State

(Liberty Bell) – One of the most decisive points of President Donald Trump’s electoral path to victory in 2016 was the moment that he won the state of Florida against then-rival Hillary Clinton.

It was all downhill for Hillary after that point. She must have known, at that moment, that she was done for and would, sooner or later, have to concede.

The Democrats know what is at stake in Florida this year, and one of their top bankrollers (and short-lived presidential candidate) is doing what he can to influence the state in Biden’s favor.

Newsmax reports:

Michael Bloomberg, who spent $1 billion of his own money on a failed 2020 presidential bid, will inject at least $100 million to help Democrat Joe Biden’s campaign against President Donald Trump in Florida.

The billionaire’s decision comes at a critical moment in the final 51 days of the race, with polls showing a close race in the battleground state and no financial advantage for the sitting president.

Trump’s initial financial supremacy over former Vice President Biden has evaporated after the Republican’s campaign spent freely and Democratic fundraising surged once the party’s divisive primary ended.

“Mike Bloomberg is committed to helping defeat Trump, and that is going to happen in the battleground states,” said Bloomberg adviser Kevin Sheekey, who added that the spending “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.”

Before Bloomberg dumped his cash into the party’s efforts, both the Trump had Biden team were gearing up for expensive fights in the crucial state.

Vote-by-mail begins in the state on September 24, and Biden will visit in person for the first time since becoming the party’s presumptive nominee on Tuesday.

Trump, meanwhile, is well-loved in Florida, where he owns the famous Mar-a-Lago resort and has moved his residence there permanently since becoming President.

According to to recent polls, Biden has a slim advantage in the state. He is popular with older voters but is not as popular with a demographic the Democrats can usually take for granted: Latinos.

Trump’s latino base in Florida, where many Cuban exiles live, is strong, loud, and vibrant, and he’s had several energetic rallies featuring Venezuelan ex-pats touting his firm opposition to the illegal Maduro regime and its Marxist destruction of South America’s most resource-rich nation.

People over 65 years old make up one in five of the state’s voters, while Latinos make up one in four.

  1. Begs the question what does Bloomberg get for his $100 million. Why is he willing to procure a $400,000 dollar job for Biden .It seems to me that’s a bad return on investment.Unless?

  2. It’s pathetic that so many rich guys hate Trumps guts. I think deep down inside they wish that THEY had the brains to do what he is doing! Trump tackles problems a different way & not one lying, corrupt, evil plotting Dem is gonna allow Trump credit for anything good. Biden is a blithering idiot who is being fed propaganda & lies created each week by the Democrat crisis committee & pushed by the media to hide the truth about anything. The spin is nothing but half truths & lies. The sad fact is that Bidens fans believe this crap!

  3. Joe Biden has become the democrat’s robodoc candidate, but without a teleprompter, he cannot put two coherent sentences together that make sense. This is one problem that cannot be resolved with Bloomberg-money, a man whom spent 500 million on his own failed presidential run for the office, while gaining a mere .05% of the vote. There are no moderates pushing Bidens buttons, put rather a group of far-left-radicals whom believe the stability of a nation can only be achieved when people become subservient to the far-left-agenda of socialism… the big lie); while it promises prosperity, equality, and security, it delivered poverty, misery, and tyranny. The free stuff in paid via, increased taxation, resulting in lower profits, diminished growth, and a substantial increase in unemployment; this is how the nightmare of Socialism has impoverished each and every country throughout the centuries, and I can assure you that the politicians governing these impoverished countries, continue to live like fat-cats. Don’t be fooled by what people say because the month can say anything, but rather, watch what they do, and what they have accomplished in the past, because that is whom they really are. God Bless America.

  4. Bloomberg already flushed a half BILLION dollars down the crapper in an effort to win the Democrat nomination. He is a fascist wannabe who drinks the global warming kool-aid and wants to control the rest of us. How do these rich people get so stupid?
