While Michael Bloomberg continues to fund his presidential campaign with nearly $100-million of his fortune, he’s also spreading his wealth around to dozens of House Democrats running for re-election in 2020. As Axios reports:
Mike Bloomberg will donate$10 million this week “to defend vulnerable Democratic House members against paid Republican attacks on their support for impeachment proceedings” in 2020, the Washington Post reports.
Why it matters: We’re told Bloomberg sees House Democrats as a counterweight to President Trump — the reason he was the biggest outside individual spender on Democrats during the 2018 midterms.
