“Donors hedging their bets on Biden because of [Mike] Bloomberg could be creating a doomsday scenario for Democrats everywhere,” the group’s treasurer, Larry Rasky, wrote in the memo, Politico reported. Bloomberg, a billionaire self-funding his campaign, announced he’d be skipping the first four nominating states. Despite his late entry to the race and not having participated in a single debate, the former New York City mayor has been rising in recent polls.

Rasky also reportedly wrote that the “Sanders-Warren wing of the Party is ready for the Bloomberg fight,” but said that Democrats “cannot afford a split convention.” 

“Do you really think the Sanders voters wing will support Mike Bloomberg?” he asked, adding that “it looks like Bernie could consolidate the left quickly” if Warren can’t “close on” the Vermont senator. 

Although the memo warns about Sanders as the party’s nominee, Rasky also takes a swing at Buttigieg in the memo.

“We all like and respect mayor Pete. He has run a tremendous campaign. However, Democrats run the risk of a realignment of the African American vote if Pete is the nominee,” Rasky wrote. 

Spokespeople for Buttigieg, Sanders and Warren were not immediately available for comment. 

The super PAC announced last week it would be investing $900,000 on TV and digital ads in New Hampshire ahead of Tuesday’s primary. It also said that it started targeted communications to African American and Latino voters in Nevada, and will soon move into South Carolina with radio and digital advertisements.
