Billionaire Mike Bloomberg reportedly poured over $100 million into an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to support 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the key swing states of Florida, Ohio and Texas.
Bloomberg had hoped to use his millions to sway the election in Biden’s favor, according to Fox Business.
“Our singular goal was electing Joe Biden,” senior Bloomberg advisor Howard Wolfson told Fox News.
“We believe that Joe Biden is going to be the next president and we believe that we were successful in terms of our efforts to help him.”
Bloomberg is no stranger to unsuccessful ventures, having spent $1 billion on a failed late entry into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
