Former New York City mayor and candidate for the Democratic Party 2020 presidential nomination Mike Bloomberg has donated $250,000 to the Jewish Democratic Council of America’s Super Political Action Committee (JDCA PAC), which represents Jewish Democratic Party supporters, in order to help fund the launch of its digital outreach campaign targeting Jewish voters in the swing state of Florida, according to a press release from the organization Thursday.

In the press release, the group said that encouraging Jewish voters in key swing states to vote for former vice president and current Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden is pivotal for his chances to be elected as president, noting that Florida in particular has 722,000 eligible Jewish voters, accounting for 4.2% of the Florida electorate.
