This is will help Bloomberg target existing areas of campaigning along with focus on new markets, according to a campaign aide. Mr. Bloomberg has now asked his advisers for the new round of spending after the Iowa Democratic Party failed to announce the results of the first nominating contest Monday night.

He is known to have spent $254 million on television and radio across the U.S. and at least $47 million on Facebook and Google ads since entering the race in late November 2019. His strategy was to focus on states that would be voting in March 2020.

The Bloomberg campaign has also announced he robust manpower it has employed to meet its ambition.
