Bloomberg to fund anti-Trump operation in 6 critical states

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Mike Bloomberg is out of the Democratic presidential race, but he's not done trying to beat President Donald Trump.

The billionaire businessman is funding an anti-Trump operation in six battleground states in an effort to oust the Republican president in November.

Bloomberg will tap his vast fortune to pay for field offices in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

It will be done through an independent expenditure committee that can't coordinate with any campaign, though Bloomberg has endorsed Joe Biden.

It's unclear how his organization will operate if Biden is not the nominee, as aides to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders say they wouldn't want Bloomberg's help.

The democracy is on a precipice sliding down to autocracy.
If Bloomberg is willing to help stop that slide, bravo for him.

New York Billionaire attempting to influence Wisconsin voters!!!

How much $$$ will Mike Bloomberg pay Wisconsin media outlets? How important is this money to Wisconsin media outlets?

Conflict of Interest? Media outlets accepting payments... bribes to support candidates with money, cutting off those without $$$. The media controlled who would debate based on how much money the candidates had available to spend on media...

Every media outlet should declare how much political $$$ they receive and from whom.

are u a Russian bot? lol -- so u get to list a whole bunch of things and claim thats what the Democratic nominee will support? Um ok I guess. Or we could elevate the discussion a lil.

we could take each one of these and dissect them and rip them apart with multiple links to what Joe Biden actually thinks regarding health care, gun laws, immigration, the military, and the economy but u would prefer we just dumb it down into scary generalized soundbites lol
