By injecting such an enormous amount of financial resources into the Sunshine State so close to the election, Bloomberg has the potential ability to single-handedly determine the outcome of the 2020 election and alter the course of American history. Bloomberg's investment in Florida is key because of its weight in the electoral college. The race will likely stay very close until Election Day, giving even more significance to Bloomberg's unprecedented investment. But Bloomberg's money puts Biden in play in every possible demographic where votes can be harvested. There is another scenario in which, even if Trump is able to eke out a win in Florida -- despite Bloomberg's investments -- he goes on to lose the general election because of all the resources Bloomberg's Florida effort drained from the Trump campaign's efforts in other states.
