Bloomberg transfers $18 million to DNC

Former presidential candidate gives some field offices to state organizations

Former Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg transferred $18 million to the Democratic National Committee on Friday.

“Mike Bloomberg entered this race to ensure Democrats win — keeping the House blue, flipping the Senate, winning key state and local races, and taking back the White House — and this commitment through November helps do exactly that,” the campaign said in a letter to DNC chair Tom Perez. “By supporting the Democratic Party, we look forward to November and taking on our unified goal of beating Donald Trump.”

Additionally, the former New York City mayor’s campaign will transfer control of some of its field offices to state organizations and aid in the hiring of campaign personnel.

It’s not clear whether New Jersey’s Bloomberg field offices are among those being moved.

Before dropping out after failing to win any states on Super Tuesday, Bloomberg built a base of support in New Jersey. He came within four votes of winning the organizational line in Hunterdon County but lost to U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has since suspended her campaign.
