Bloomberg admitted he 'spent $100 million to help elect' Democrats to Congress and 'bought' the House majority

Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg made a bombshell admission during Tuesday night's Democrat Debate, revealing that he "spent $100 million to help elect" Dems to Congress and "bought" the House majority.

The billionaire boasted that his spending efforts to fill the House of Representatives with Democrats also led to Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) winning the speakership.

Bloomberg made the mic-drop claim that he funded the Democrats' 2018 midterms gains during CBS News's debate in South Carolina.

“Let’s just go on the record,” Bloomberg declared.

“They talk about 40 Democrats, 21 of those were people that I spent $100 million to help elect.

"All of the new Democrats that came in put Nancy Pelosi in charge, and gave the Congress the ability to control this president, I bought – I got them.”

Bloomberg’s remarks came during the Democratic presidential debate in Charleston, S.C.

In the 2018 midterm elections, Democrats gained 40 seats in the House to seize the majority from Republicans, who had controlled the chamber since 2011, NBC News reported.

“All of the new Democrats that came in put Nancy Pelosi in charge and gave the Congress the ability to control this president,” Bloomberg boasted during Tuesday's debate.

According to The New York Times, the number quoted by Bllomberg is accurate.

“Overall spending by Mr. Bloomberg and his organizations in the 2018 elections topped $112 million, an amount that also includes donations to help Senate candidates and progressive organizations,” The Times reported.

The Times highlighted how Bloomberg’s massive spending helped tilt the scales in favor of the Democrats in 2018.

“But in this year’s midterm elections, Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, emerged as a powerful and effective force, as well as the biggest outside spender promoting Democratic House candidates, according to disclosures filed with the Federal Election Commission,” The Times reported.

“And while it’s impossible to conclude that any one factor tipped the balance in a race, Mr. Bloomberg appears to have reaped the benefits of his millions in giving.

"Democrats won 21 of the 24 races he sought to influence. Of those, 12 had been considered either tossups or in Republican districts.”

Former New York City Mayor Bloomberg has spent hundreds of millions of dollars of his multi-billion dollar fortune to self-fund his presidential campaign.

He has also spent much of his wealth advocating for gun control and government action on climate change.
