Bloomberg spending at least $100M in Florida to beat Trump: report

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg is committing $100 million to help Joe Biden win the state of Florida. NPR's Mara Lesson reports. It's a strategic calculation. Bloomberg's investment is a potential game changer in Florida, a swing state with very expensive media markets. The trumpet needs TTO win if he is to reach 270 electoral votes. Haydn, on the other hand, has several routes to 2 70. Without winning Florida. Bloomberg's big investment would force Trump to spend more time and money in Florida and allow the Biden campaign to focus. Its resource is on other states. Right now. Florida is considered a toss up with neither candidate showing much of a lead in the polls. Bloomberg spent about a billion dollars on his own unsuccessful run for the Democratic nomination, and during the primaries, he promised to spend whatever it takes to defeat Donald Trump.
