There it is: "Mike Bloomberg is privately lobbying Democratic Party officials and donors allied with his moderate opponents to flip their allegiance to him — and block Bernie Sanders — in the event of a brokered national convention." https://t.co/KP8220JmJl— Saagar Enjeti (@esaagar) February 21, 2020

Mike Bloomberg has spent an unprecedented $463 million of his massive personal fortune on his bid to become the Democratic presidential nominee in the three months since he launched his campaign, according to Federal Election filings released on Thursday. The spending report, which covers the period when Bloomberg announced his candidacy through Jan. 31, 2019, far surpasses the amounts spent and raised by other contenders for the Democratic nomination. Campaign officials said a portion of the money went toward building up Bloomberg's operation, which had 1,000 employees at the end of the filing period. The payroll has since grown to 2,100. In January alone, the campaign spent $220.6 million, with most of the money going toward television ads.
