Mike Bloomberg’s campaign spends $10 million on 60 seconds of airtime during the Super Bowl to aggravate the president

Trump’s team announced that the spots will run early in the game when viewership is expected to be at its highest. The Republican National Committee and Trump’s reelection team reported raising $436 million in figures released last week.
“The president’s decision to stay aggressive and keep the campaign open after his first election gave us a huge head start on his reelection,” wrote Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale in a statement. “Now 300 days out we are throttling up. The president has built an awesome, high-performance, omnichannel machine and it’s time to give it some gas.”
Trump isn’t the only one spending 10 million on a 60-second spot. I read earlier today that Michael Bloomberg is also purchasing one as well and his ad is supposed to be a full 60 seconds, as opposed to being divided between two ads. It wouldn’t surprise me if it featured Judge Judy, who just endorsed him in the Democratic primary.
And I’m sure these aren’t the only ones. I suspect Steyer and a few other big names in the Democratic primary that have raised a ton of cash will also purchase ad spots.
I’d say all the politics will kill the famed Super Bowl commercials, but honestly, the commercials really haven’t been good for quite a few years.
