Former billionaire Democratic candidate Mike Bloomberg is injecting a hefty sum of $18 million from his failed presidential campaign into the Democratic National Committee in the biggest such donation to date, the DNC announced.

The record transfer is seen as a sign of Bloomberg’s eager involvement in the anti-Trump campaign at large after quitting the presidential race in the wake of his poor showing on Super Tuesday, which this year fell on 3 March. Back then, he won only one US territory, while former Vice President Joe Biden became a frontrunner.

Throughout his campaign, the media mogul, boasting a net worth of well over $50 billion, reiterated a number of times that whatever his own results in the race were, he would help the Democrats try to defeat Donald Trump.
While that's a good deal of money which the DNC will instantly mismanage, that seems small for Bloomberg, I guess that near $1 billion, over $900 million in cash burned up in his failed presidential bid, has made him a bid more cautious with his money.

Man over $900 billion this loser spend to only slightly beat Elizabeth Warren who had a cratering campaign nearly two months before ST and he just squeaked by. The old reports of how much he spend were being nice.

Can't even give the DNC $20 million Bloomberg? lol. If we are lucky this donation will influence the general election the same as his failed presidential campaign. ;)

LMAO that won't pay for shit nationally. The last presidential race alone cost Dems over a $1B.

And, of course, he also gave them his oh-so effective campaign resources:

It's more about paying favors forward so he gets what he wants later

He must really be getting something good in return for spending over 900 million so far. Either that, or yea, he is just certifiably nuts.

Wait!
Bloomberg is going to give that much money?

Just like a Dem to throw cash at a problem.

The battle of the rich old guys... hmmmmmmmm....
It seems to only be a problem when it’s a Republican......

Interesting

again, there’s not a Democrat who I couldn’t verbally annihilate in here
