I saw this story this morning, and frankly it didn’t make much sense to me:
“Mike Bloomberg plans to spend at least $100 million in Florida to help elect Democrat Joe Biden, a massive late-stage infusion of cash that could reshape the presidential contest in a costly toss-up state central to President Trump’s reelection hopes.
“Bloomberg made the decision to focus his final election spending on Florida last week, after news reports that Trump had considered spending as much as $100 million of his own money in the final weeks of the campaign, Bloomberg’s advisers said. Presented with several options on how to make good on an earlier promise to help elect Biden, Bloomberg decided that a narrow focus on Florida was the best use of his money.”
Of all people, Bloomberg must know that A) Lord Damp Nut doesn’t have $100M Ameros in liquid assets to spend, and 2) if LDN did, he wouldn’t spend his own money on anything like that. So what gives?
We get some clarity (speed ahead to the 4:40 mark), where Karl says, in effect that Florida generally gets their count done by midnight. If Trump loses Florida (and per Karl, allegedly FL now is pretty good about counting ballots on election day, including mail-in), that could be the end of the game.
So maybe Bloomberg knows a thing or two after all, and maybe his promise to spend big is now being met. Maybe he was waiting for the right moment?
