Much is being made of former presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg's throwing in the towel. He wasted his money, they say. It wasn't the shortest run in history (actually not), they say. True, Bloomberg made a late entry into the race in November, outspending and upsetting everyone with all those campaign ads that only he could afford.
For four months, the former New York City mayor poured over a half-billion dollars into television ads and built one of the largest field operations of any campaign. Then came Super Tuesday, preceded by primary voting in South Carolina.
