press releases on staff  |  Day One (Jan. 11, 2020)  |  Mar. 20, 2020 Memo: Bloomberg Campaign Next Steps

Overview: The Bloomberg campaign spent over $1 billion (its FEC report showed operating expenditures of $1.033 billion through Mar. 31).  Over half that went to advertising.  Forbes, citing Advertising Analytics, reported in April that Bloomberg had spent "spent $566 million on TV, radio and digital ads."  Much of that went into TV; Variety magazine, citing data from Kantar/CMAG, reported on March 5 the campaign had spent $427.2 million on TV advertising.  Bloomberg invested not just in his high-profile ad campaign, but in assembling a huge top-notch team nationally and across multiple states.  The Bloomberg campaign ultimately had a staff reported at 2,400 people.  It was a remarkable feat to recruit and bring so many people on board in such a short period of time. 

Jan. 6...   800 staff, 300 in headquarters in New York and 500 in over 30 states (NBC News).
Jan. 14...   over 1,000 staff, including more than 700 in 33 states (Politico). 
Feb. 4...   more than 2,100 staff, including 1,700 in 40 states (news reports). 
Feb. 11...   2,400 staff, including 2,000 staff based in 43 states and territories (campaign press release).

Looking at staffer experience, one can see that a fair number of people moved over from Bloomberg Philanthropies or Bloomberg LP.  Additionally, a number of staff served in various capacities in the Bloomberg administration during his tenure as Mayor of New York City.  The campaign also picked up staff from erstwhile presidential campaigns, particularly those of Kamala Harris and Steve Bullock.  At the state level the campaign sought to bring in a range of talent, building coalitions, for example including people with experience in organized labor as well as those from the private sector. 

The listing below has a lot of holes but gives a sense of the scope and organization of this unprecedented campaign. Bloomberg 2020 opened more than 200 offices around the country by Super Tuesday (some but not all listed below).

ema 11/24/19 - Whether Mike Bloomberg would take on the complications of a presidential campaign was an open question at the start of 2019. 
He did enjoy success in his three terms as Mayor (elected in 2001, 2005, and 2009).  He was having an impact in the private sector, from leadership of Bloomberg LP, the global information and technology company he founded in 1981, which has 19,000 employees, to his work at Bloomberg Philanthropies.  Bloomberg led on several issues important to Democrats, specifically gun violence and climate change.  He co-founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns in 2006 and has provided much of the backing for Everytown for Gun Safety.  On climate change, he teamed with former Sierra Club chairman Carl Pope to author Climate of Hope (St. Martin's Press, April 2017) and in 2018 Bloomberg Philanthropies supported the documentary Paris to PittsburghIn the 2018 cycle he provided a total of $110 million to support Democrats, much through his Independence USA PAC, and emphasized taking back the U.S. House (1, 2).  However, Bloomberg doesn't fit the picture of a traditional Democrat.  He has been described as a "pragmatic centrist," and will likely have difficulty attracting support of the progressive activists who are a critical part of the party.  In 2016 Bloomberg considered an independent run for president, but he ruled it out on March (+).  In March 2019, Bloomberg, now a Democrat, again ruled out a presidential run (+).  However, eight months later, on Nov. 24, he reversed course an announced his entry into the race (+).
