Bloomberg Campaign Crashes And Burns After Super Tuesday
Bloomberg dropped hundreds of millions of his own money in an attempt to buy the Primary or at the very least stop Sanders. Super Tuesday shows that he definitely didn't buy the election and at best he just took votes away from Biden. So Bloomberg, loyal to his party, dropped out of the race and then almost immediately backed Biden to show his support for the gaffe-prone establishment Dem. I guess he couldn't lie his way out of this one.
"I’m a believer in using data to inform decisions. After yesterday’s results, the delegate math has become virtually impossible – and a viable path to the nomination no longer exists. But I remain clear-eyed about my overriding objective: victory in November," Bloomberg said in his statement.
Bloomberg finished well behind on Super Tuesday, despite spending more than a half-billion of his own fortune on his 2020 bid -- centered on a strategy of skipping the early-primary stories in favor of Super Tuesday. To put his investment in perspective, he spent close to the GDP of American Samoa in order to win that contest -- and only that contest.
In backing the former vice president, Bloomberg emphasized: “I’ve known Joe for a very long time. I know his decency, his honesty, and his commitment to the issues that are so important to our country – including gun safety, health care, climate change, and good jobs."
President Trump, who has been relentless in mocking Bloomberg over everything from his height to his debate performances, delivered his barbed observations on the race once more after Bloomberg dropped out.
"Mini Mike Bloomberg just 'quit' the race for President. I could have told him long ago that he didn’t have what it takes, and he would have saved himself a billion dollars, the real cost. Now he will pour money into Sleepy Joe’s campaign, hoping to save face. It won’t work!" he tweeted."
So I guess 500 million on ads is not enough to buy the primary, just how much did Hillary give the DNC to "win" in 2016?
