Gavin Newsom Draws On Billionaire Benefactors

posted on November 23, 2015

California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is engaging in a high-profile anti-gun campaign designed to boost his profile in preparation for a gubernatorial run. Now he is raising concerns that he plans to act as Michael Bloomberg’s emissary on the West Coast. Newsom tweeted his thanks to Bloomberg for meeting him last month and is likely interested in drawing on the former New York City mayor’s vast coffers while he advances his agenda.

And while Bloomberg may be the most prominent anti-gun billionaire tied to Newsom, he’s not the only one. Napster founder Sean Parker, who gave over $1 million to promote expanded background check legislation in Washington state, invited Newsom to his wedding and has already contributed to his 2018 run for governor. California gun owners—already an embattled population—will need to mobilize if they want to defeat the ambitions of this well-funded, gun-hating candidate.
