Mike Bloomberg gives $20m to Biden camaignBillionaire Mike Bloomberg has given nearly $20 million to help Democratic President Joe Biden's re-election effort against Republican former President Donald Trump, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

Bloomberg's contribution included $19 million to an independent pro-Biden group known as Future Forward or FF PAC, and over $900,000 to the Biden Victory Fund, which is an amalgamation of the Biden campaign and Democratic Party committees, the sources added, asking not to be identified.
The donations were first reported by the Washington Post. The Biden campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Bloomberg, the former New York mayor who spent $1 billion of his own money on a failed 2020 presidential bid in the Democratic primaries, injected at least $100 million to help Biden's campaign against Trump in Florida in 2020. Trump, who lost the overall 2020 race to Biden, had won in Florida by over three percentage points.
