TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Democratic billionaire and former presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is helping Florida felons pay their debts so they can vote in the presidential election.

This comes days after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis won a court victory to keep felons who served their time from voting until they’ve also paid off fines, restitution and court fees.

Bloomberg is part of an effort that raised more than $20 million dollars to help these felons vote in the presidential election.

That’s in addition to $100 million he has pledged to help Joe Biden win Florida.

The latest available poll was from CBS News/YouGov and has Biden up by 2% on President Trump.
