Bloomberg’s Squandered Bucks

posted on November 5, 2015

We’ve told you over the past few weeks about gun-ban billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s extravagant spending on a few select state races in Virginia, where his “Everytown” group forked over more than $2 million on a pair of state Senate races.

While Democrat Jeremy McPike won with 54 percent of the vote in Alexandria, a district that voted 63 percent for Barack Obama, Everytown-backed Dan Gecker was defeated by Republican Glen Sturtevant in the Richmond area, ensuring Republicans retain control of the Senate. Overall, despite Gov. Terry McAuliffe making gun control a central issue in the election, 92 percent of NRA-backed candidates won in Virginia on Tuesday.

Even the so-called “mainstream” media noticed the trend. As Robert McCartney reported in the Washington Post on Wednesday: “When Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and his fellow Democrats study what went wrong for them in Tuesday’s crucial legislative elections, one possible mistake stands out: Their aggressive advocacy of gun control in a pivotal Senate race in the Richmond area may have backfired by producing a pro-Republican backlash.”
