Bloomberg Campaign Spends $37,000 an Hour for Three Weeks
Michael "Money Bags" Bloomberg managed to spend $18.6 million on his campaign in just the past three weeks, according to campaign records released this afternoon.
That's more than $37,000 an hour, or $900,000 a day!
In all, he's spent more than $82 million, putting him on course to dish out more than $100 million in his race for a third term.
Bloomberg's opponent Bill Thompson, by comparison, has spent close to $6 million in all, including $2.5 million in the past three weeks. So, the mayor is outspending Thompson about 9-to-1.
While Bloomberg has only one donor--uh, himself--Thompson got donations from 3,000 New Yorkers in the period, his flack tells us.
