Anti-Gun Groups Pour Money Into Washington State Senate Race

posted on October 31, 2017

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is notable for his massive outsider donations to campaigns in Virginia and other states, and now he’s trying to buy a seat in the Washington state Senate for an anti-gun candidate. What’s more, he’s far from the only gun control advocate pumping money into this campaign. 

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Bloomberg has given $250,000 to the campaign of Manka Dhingra, who is running on a strongly anti-gun ticket. Another activist billionaire, Tom Steyer, has provided $125,000. Conservative Firing Line reports that a local anti-gun group, Alliance for Gun Responsibility, has donated over $18,000 to Dhingra’s campaign and over $5,000 to attack her Republican opponent, Jinyoung Englund. 

Englund is endorsed by the NRA and by the Seattle Times, which called for her election in the pursuit of partisan balance. But anti-gunners see Dhingra as the candidate who can help them dominate Washington politics, and they’re sparing no expense to put her in place.
