Bloomberg pouring $100M in anti-Trump ads

Americans looking for an escape from the nation's politically charged political environment won't find it in next month's Super Bowl.

Dueling ads from President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg are set to run during the NFL championship game.

The Trump campaign has for months been in talks for ad time with Fox, the network broadcasting the Feb. 2 game.

The Bloomberg campaign followed once Trump's intentions were clear.

Both campaigns announced their ad reservations hours apart Tuesday. Each purchased 60 seconds of airtime, with the Trump campaign saying theirs will air early in the game, when viewership is typically highest.
