Billionaire Bloomberg dropping millions in Badger State

MADISON — Billionaire liberal Michael Bloomberg on Sunday officially announced his plan to buy the presidency, as the former New York mayor prepares to unleash a multi-million dollar side campaign to undercut President Donald Trump in Wisconsin and other battleground states.

He’s the latest liberal sugar daddy spending a fortune to turn the Badger State from red to blue.

Bloomberg, 77, plans to spend as much as $20 million on a voter-registration drive to bring out minority voters in Arizona, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin, according to the Associated Press. 

It’s all part of a $150 million strategy that the former faux Republican, who also happens to be the 8th richest man in the world, will use to attack Trump and sell Michal Bloomberg.

The new voter registration effort, according to the AP, targets states where Trump won by thin margins in 2016. The Republican president carried Michigan and Wisconsin by less than 1 percentage point, and Arizona and North Carolina by less than 3 points.

“The exception is Texas, where Trump scored a 9-point victory, but where Democrats are increasingly hopeful that demographic shifts backed by California transplants will make the state more competitive next year,” AP reports.

The voter registration drive, to be launched early next year, expects to target 500,000 voters from “traditionally underrepresented groups that typically lean Democratic, including African Americans, Latinos, Asians, young voters and those living in some rural communities.”

Bloomberg has already dumped a lot of money into “training” mayors of cities nationwide. Far left Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway is part of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative that “aims to provide an intensive learning experience for mayors and their senior leaders to equip them with the tools and expertise to effectively lead complex cities,” according to a press release. 

Rhodes-Conway told AP that Bloomberg’s new investment would make a significant difference on the ground in her state, where Trump won by fewer than 23,000 votes.

“That’s a big, hairy, audacious goal. I think it’s great,” she said.

Here’s a big, hairy deal that has election-integrity experts concerned in Wisconsin: The state’s election regulator is sidestepping state law to allow potentially hundreds of thousands of registered voters who appeared to have moved to remain on the active voter list through next year’s presidential election. State statute requires those voters to be removed from the active files.

The Wisconsin Election Commission’s liberal policy is being challenged in federal court. 

Liberal voting initiatives have targeted transient voter populations, to the detriment of voter integrity, critics say.

Bloomberg isn’t the only liberal billionaire presidential candidate dumping piles of cash on voter recruitment initiatives. Last week, NextGen America, founded and funded by Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer, launched its registration and turnout operation in Wisconsin and 10 other battleground states. Steyer plans to spend $45 million in the coming year to register at least 270,000 young voters, according to multiple media outlets.
