You Won't Believe How Much Bloomberg Spent Trying To Become President
The 2020 presidential election had Dems from all walks of life entering the race. It seemed like Dems everywhere wanted a shot at becoming president and defeating Trump. But as time went by it really came down to Biden, Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg on the Democrat ticket, that is until Bloomberg decided to join in. Bloomberg added his name to the race after everyone else was well established, but he thought that he could use his vast wealth to buy the election, and had he joined in sooner he very well might have beaten Biden in the primary. But despite Bloomberg just dumping millions into his campaign, he just didn't have the clout to become a frontrunner and dropped out after Super Tuesday. In the short time that Bloomberg ran, he burned through money. Bloomberg could have paid every American $2 million dollars to vote for him and saved himself money since he blew over 1 Billion dollars in his attempt to run.
"...Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, whose final campaign finance disclosure forms were just filed, revealing, perhaps, the most epic presidential campaign failure in U.S. history. Bloomberg announced on November 24, 2019 that he was running for president to unseat President Donald Trump. He suspended his campaign less than four months later, on March 4."
"In total, Bloomberg spent $1,221,777,405.26 on his 104-day campaign for 55 pledged delegates. To put that into perspective, that means Bloomberg spent $11,747,859.66 per day during his campaign and a whopping $22,214,134.64 per delegate."
Bloomberg has a net worth of $54 Billion dollars.
"A person close to Bloomberg in the business community, who declined to be named in order to speak freely, recently told CNBC that the former New York mayor is still disappointed in the way his campaign panned out after spending just over $1 billion of his own money, and he’s not yet ready to get back into the public eye of taking on President Donald Trump."
I would be more than a little upset if I wasted a billion dollars...
On average an American will only make about 1 million dollars in their lifetime. So Bloomberg spent over 1000 times that like it was nothing. How can a person that rich relate to the average American?
