Democratic hopeful Michael Bloomberg has spent more than $460 million on his campaign. 

And a good portion of that money has been used to hire campaign staff in our region. Why? The Mountain West News Bureau’s Madelyn Beck has been following this and joins Idaho Matters to talk about why that’s good for Bloomberg… and maybe not so good for other Democratic campaigns in the region.
