Bloomberg helps Biden. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is committing at least $ 100 million to help Joe Biden’s presidential campaign in the crucial state of Florida, a traditional battleground that decides the winner of the presidential election.

Bloomberg’s late-stage cash injection reflects Democrats’ concerns about the tight race in a state that is a top priority for President Donald Trump.

A Biden victory in Florida, the largest of the perennial states on the battlefield, would significantly complicate Trump’s path to reaching the 270 Electoral College votes needed to secure a second term.

Republicans, however, are confident in their chances in the state, pointing to Republican victories in 2018 and stronger-than-expected turnout in 2016 as evidence that the state is heading in their direction. They have invested millions in Florida focused on reaching Latino voters and boosting their operations there, and the size and diversity of the state make campaigning there costly.

Billionaire Bloomberg launched his own campaign for the Democratic nomination late last year amid concerns about Biden’s strengths.

Despite spending a billion dollars on his campaign, Bloomberg fought back and withdrew in March, quickly backing Biden.

Bloomberg, one of the richest men in the world with an estimated net worth of more than $ 60 billion, vowed throughout his campaign that he would help Democrats try to defeat Trump regardless of how his own candidacy fared. to the White House.

He came out of the presidential race promising to spend “whatever it takes” to defeat Trump, and has already invested millions to support the Democrats in voting. Bloomberg transferred $ 18 million from his presidential campaign to the Democratic National Committee and transferred his offices in six key states to local Democratic parties.

The businessman contributed $ 500,000 to the organization to help register Latino voters, $ 2 million to the Collective Future group to help register African American voters and $ 2 million to Swing Left, a group focused on electing Democrats in changing districts.

One of the groups he has founded and funded, Everytown for Gun Safety, has pledged to spend $ 60 million on elections this cycle, and Bloomberg himself has pledged another $ 60 million to support Democrats in the elections to the House of Representatives.

Kamala Harris vows to be a voice for Latino business in the White House

Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamela Harris said on Saturday that Latino businesses, especially those led by women, need to have a “voice” in the White House, and asked for their support in the November elections.

“We are creating a strong coalition to win Arizona and it will require the work of all together, to achieve this goal and above all we are asking for the support of small businesses, which we know are the foundation of the economy,” Harris said in a virtual forum with Hispanic businessmen and women.

“Their businesses represent not just their work, but who they are and their communities,” he added.

The senator promised that if the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden reaches the White House her administration will provide $ 100 billion in low-interest loans for small businesses.

He also pledged to fight for health insurance accessible to all and that covers pre-existing conditions, especially now with so many people who fell ill with COVID-19 and who, after recovering, still have sequelae.

He ensured that a Biden administration would focus on the “people of the community.”

Sandra Otero, owner of the “Los Jarritos” restaurant in Tucson, was one of the participants in the forum and said that based on hard work and a lot of sacrifice in the last 40 years her family has managed to establish itself, for which the trust of the community Latina has been key.

The same testimony was given by Vanessa Cazarez, a Phoenix businesswoman who has an events business, which has been closed for the last six months due to the pandemic. “In Arizona, you need leadership that helps Latino businesses,” he said.

In Arizona alone, Latina women’s businesses account for more than 50% of all Latino startups in the state.

Harris’s forum takes place days before President Trump visits Phoenix, where on Monday he will lead the “Latinos for Trump” event to boost the vote of this community in Arizona, a key state in the November elections.
