Bloomberg Continues Pour Money Into His Anti-Trump Campaign
Former Governor Michael Bloomberg has not officially announced that he is running, but that hasn’t stopped him from pouring over 100 million dollars into attacking Trump and trying to ensure that voters will vote blue in the 2020 election.
“Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is spending between $15 million and $20 million on a 2020 voter registration initiative despite not yet officially declaring his candidacy for the Democratic nomination to the presidency.
The investment, which was confirmed by Bloomberg’s team on Wednesday, will target voters in battleground states that generally lean left, including African Americans, Asians, Latinos, younger voters, and rural voters, and seeks to weaken President Donald Trump’s chances at reelection, according to The Associated Press.
The news of the voter registration effort comes less than a week after Bloomberg announced that he will be spending $100 million on a digital ad campaign against Trump. Bloomberg himself is not featured in the ad beyond the legally mandated disclaimers, but rather the ads will focus on attacking the incumbent president
The high-priced ticket item is especially unique considering that it would potentially be in addition to any ads Bloomberg might purchase to promote his own candidacy.
“Mike is taking the fight directly to Trump where it matters most, in general election battleground states,” said Bloomberg spokesman Jason Schechter. “He did it last week through a $100 million digital ad buy. He’s doing it this week at the ballot box.”
“The new voter registration drive targets voters across five states that Trump won in 2016 largely by narrow margins. The Republican president carried Michigan and Wisconsin by less than 1 point and Arizona and North Carolina by 3 points. The exception is Texas, where Trump scored a 9-point victory, but where Democrats are increasingly hopeful that demographic shifts backed by California transplants will make the state more competitive next year.”
Seems like Bloomberg is trying to buy this election. Too bad this isn’t 2016 he could have gone into a bidding war with Hillary over the DNC.
Trump has been killing it giving us the best economy we have had in years and actually trying to keep us safe with border security. Hopefully, voters keep that in mind when they get to the voting booth for the 2020 election.
