Skip to comments.Democrats urge Bloomberg to invest in Senate races as McConnell-linked super PAC spends big
Posted on 10/26/2020 9:51:19 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat
Democratic fundraisers are privately urging billionaire former presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg and his team to invest in hotly contested Senate races with just over a week until Election Day, according to people familiar with the matter.
The pleas come as a super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell floods these races with cash on behalf of the GOP candidates.
The Senate Leadership Fund, which is run by allies of McConnell, is outraising and often outspending its Democratic counterpart, Senate Majority PAC, down the stretch. The Democratic group is linked to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Bloombergs response to some people has not been encouraging, according to people familiar with the matter. These people have been hearing that Bloomberg, who has a net worth of just under $55 billion, does not plan to put up big money into the Senate Majority PAC. Bloomberg has already committed at least $100 million to help Joe Biden in the key state of Florida.
Bloomberg also has said he will spend $60 million this year to help House Democrats. Bloomberg also invested $1 billion into his own campaign for president, with millions going toward anti-Trump ads. Bloomberg won only the American Samoa caucus during the primary season before he dropped out in March and endorsed Biden.

Oh LOL Now they like Bloomerg. “Shut up and just give us the money!”
It’s all hypocrisy. Bloomberg is in love with Bloomberg and that’s it.
Always has been. Always will be.
He is the only cause he cares about
Rudy may have one of his laptops...so Bloomie may be reluctant /s
So, they wouldn't vote for Get Shorty, but they're telling him they'll take his check? Tell 'em to shove it, Mike, you know a lost cause when you see one.
Bloomberg’s done a lot of for the world...He creates things the world likes so much they’re willing to pay him for use of his product. That’s done more for the world than building marginal solar systems for third world villages any day of the week.
Proud to be a former Bloomberg customer/subscriber. No more feeding the enemy.
Some descendants of big investors believe that they can continue to control fascism, even after it hardens.
If Biden wins, he tells his Wall Street supporters he cant wait to raise taxes
That’s not really a response to what I said in the same context.
