Bloomberg has not yet decided if he will seek the presidency in 2020 and yet he is about to become the biggest spender of the presidential race, The New York Times said.
The former mayor began a $ 100 million digital campaign designed to attack President Trump in the main states that will be key to deciding the 2020 elections.
The ads are running online in Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, and will continue until the end of the Democratic primary season, even if Bloomberg decides not to finally participate.RELATED
Bloomberg does not appear in the ads and this campaign will add to what the billionaire can spend on efforts to promote himself to become the Democratic candidate.
"We will have other announcements with Mike Bloomberg," Howard Wolfson, one of Bloomberg's top political advisers, told the Times. The former mayor of New York is actively preparing to participate in the Democratic presidential primaries.
The billionaire businessman was analyzing in private an offer by the White House during the last weeks and has not yet made a decision, EFE agency said. He has already taken a first step, however, by sending his employees to Alabama to gather signatures to qualify for the primaries in that state.
