Minnesota chooses Biden in Super Tuesday Primary
Bloomberg vastly outspending opponents on Super Tuesday ads
Today marks the first set of elections where former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg is officially on the ballot — and in preparation, he’s shelled out an extraordinary amount of money to make his candidacy known.
Since announcing his candidacy in late November, the multibillionaire has spent $500 million on ads around the country.
In Super Tuesday states alone, Bloomberg has spent about a quarter of a billion dollars on ads — per data from Advertising Analytics through Feb. 27.
He has spent the most money in California ($71 million,) Texas ($53 million,) and North Carolina ($15 million) — which are the three states offering the most delegates today.
And compared to his competitors Bloomberg leads in ad spending by about $200 million.
