With buys from this morning accounted for, @Mike Bloomberg has surpassed $200 M the rest of the field has spent $222M combined, the ad-tracking group Advertising Analytics reported in a tweet Friday.
Bloombergs ads have been ubiquitous on the airwaves in New York and other states where Democrats will vote in primary elections in March and April. He is not focusing on the early-voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
The former three-term New York City mayor is spending so much money on television spots across the country that its squeezing out air time for others and causing ad rates to soar, Advertising Analytics said in a prior report.
Experts say Bloombergs total campaign spending totals could easily cross the $1 billion mark if he wins the nomination to challenge President Trump in November.
Bloomberg has said he will spend whatever it takes to defeat Trump and will continue the effort to topple the Republican incumbent even if he loses the Democratic nomination.

Could have fixed a couple TWSH countries with that. IF he cared. Which he doesn’t. Hey mikey. FAH-Q!
Seeing his commercials in my state where democrats never campaign in seems like a waste of funds.
That’s $200 million that is no longer available for gun control campaigns.
Are the liberals, who eschew the big money in politics, concerned about Bloomberg spending all this money on his campaign?
Will the liberals lecture him, about how many hungry children could be fed with that money, or how we could have built housing for the poor, or fought global warming with that money instead?
Look the guy’s got Billions he’ll never be able to spend. Let him have his fun, help the economy via his throwing good money at a useless campaign and big gulp:-)
Or could have been taxed.
200 million would build a fine homeless shelter in NYC, it’s a wasted expenditure just for an ego build. Hypocrite.
And he’s buy.. eee..ing the stairway to hev..on.
In the time it takes Mike Bloomburg to say “ten thousand dollars”, he probably makes ten thousand dollars. His wealth isn’t limitless, but it’s about as close as it gets.
He doesn’t give a shiff about NYC.
Jeb Bush must be smiling. He not going to be the records holder for most spent per vote in a primary anymore.
The part in bold is probably intentional. This may be the first Democratic race where one guy's money drowns out the other candidates. Whatever the other guys spend, combined, Bloomberg just adds another zero to the end.
As a historical point, who was the last Jew who even came close to winning POTUS? Barry Goldwater is the only name that comes to mind and Im not sure I would call his campaign close....Any others?
Weve already got the building for it. Its called the UN for now.
He could have provided fresh water for most of Africa with that.
Bloomberg has spent almost twice as much as Jeb spent in 2016, and so far he’s getting less than half as much in results. They spend their campaign money as wastefully as they spend our money.
He’s a one-man stimulus package.
Wow! That makes Bloomberg my favorite progressive.
He took the title from Beto O’York who single-handedly threw over 100 million progressive bucks in the toilet when you add the Senate race to his presidential bid.
