Billionaire Mike Bloomberg has pledged at least $100m to help Democrat  Joe Biden's presidential campaign in Florida.

Of the battleground states Florida offers the biggest share of the Electoral College votes needed to win.

 

Bloomberg already spent $1bn this year trying to defeat Biden to become the Democratic challenger.

 

Donald Trump has hinted he will spend his own money in the state ahead of early voting opening on 24 September.

 

Both campaigns are keen to appeal to voters who may be casting their votes early by post and set the tone of the final weeks of their campaigns.

 

Postal voting is expected to be double this year compared to 2016 due to the coronavirus pandemic encouraging voters to avoid the polling station.

 

Florida offers 29 of the 270 Electoral College voters needed to win the election.
