Mike Bloomberg has invested big in Mississippi. While other candidates have a token force in the state, Bloomberg has 24 full-time staffers.

According to Adam Ganucheau’s recent story:

“The size of Bloomberg’s team is especially striking when compared to the most robust Democratic campaigns in Mississippi. Bloomberg has more full-time staffers than the 2019 gubernatorial campaign of Jim Hood, the 2018 U.S. Senate campaign of Mike Espy, and the 2008 U.S. Senate campaign of Ronnie Musgrove — campaigns that benefited from substantial fundraising and national attention.”
