According to previous reports, Mike Bloomberg spent just over $500 million on his short-lived presidential campaign. But a new FEC filing reveals that the actual total was much larger, to the tune of almost a billion dollars.


As Carrie Levine of the Center for Public Integrity points out, the final number settled at around $935 million.

Bloomberg was the richest person in history to run for president. As Business Insider points out, his campaign expenditures likely didn't make a dent in his personal fortune.
