Bloomberg to Reassess Campaign After Spending Half a Billion Dollars to Win American Samoa
One thing is clear: Billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg did not have anything close to a good night on Super Tuesday. It was so not good, in fact, that it apparently might be the end of his campaign altogether.

Bloomberg campaign officials said they’d take “another look to see if there’s a reason to continue with this after tomorrow,” NBC News’ Josh Lederman reported.

Still, Lederman said, the campaign insisted that Bloomberg would spend “no small fortune” to help the eventual nominee, no matter who that ends up being. (The campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders, however, has said it would reject Bloomberg’s money.)

In public, the campaign projected optimism, with a press release insisting that only one-third of the delegates will have been awarded as of tonight.
