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.
