Bloomberg Drops $72 Million On Campaigns In Four Years

posted on December 1, 2015

While our spirits were buoyed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s costly and embarrassing defeat in Virginia—where voters angrily rejected his attempt to buy his way into state politics—the approximately $3 million that he lost only constitutes a fraction of his recent political spending. According to the New York Post, the ex-mayor has spent $72 million on political causes over the past four years. 

Bloomberg’s seemingly bottomless coffers have propelled a number of anti-gun candidates to victory, despite setbacks like the one in Virginia. If gun owners are to defeat the influence of a billionaire whose one overriding goal is to undermine the Second Amendment, it is critical that we be able to match his spending.
