BOOM!! Mike Bloomberg plans to spend at least $100 million in Florida to help elect Joe Biden, a massive late-stage infusion of cash that could reshape the presidential contest in a costly toss-up state central to Trump’s reelection hopes. https://t.co/yz6HyakRL3

Thing is, while Mr. Bloomberg is certainly willing as well as able to pay for his pleasures, he’s frugal. After not actually keeping his most widely celebrated 2020-election-related promises so far, why volunteer to throw in $100,000,000 now?

Yes, Mike Bloomberg would certainly take an opportunity to remind his former NYC neighbor which of them actually *is* a billionaire. Even if Mike doesn’t actually end up spending a hundred million, the Squatter-in-Chief will insist his Marred-A-Largo castle be defended from the Democratic (at the moment) barbarian.
I’ll believe it when I see it, but if Bloomberg can force the RNC to throw a bunch of money they can’t spare into advertising in Florida, bless you Mike & I hope Biden’s team finds you a nice ceremonial ambassadorship come January.
Trump won Florida by only 1.19%. If Biden keeps the Hillary states—and he doesn’t appear in much danger of losing any—& he wins just Michigan and Florida it’s done. https://t.co/relI7hb4IL

Key point: Florida counts its vote by mail ballots before Election Day, so by targeting Florida Bloomberg hopes to prevent Trump from having evidence to falsely claim victory that night. https://t.co/ONB4UbkDkK
