After meeting with "Nanny" New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg back in September, McAwful got a big $1.1 million donation from the pro-gun grabbing liberal mayor (Politico).
Michael Bloomberg’s pro-gun-control super PAC will drop $1.1 million on ads for Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the final two weeks of the Virginia governor’s race.
The billionaire New York City mayor’s money will be siphoned through Independence USA PAC into broadcast television commercials in the D.C. market, according to two sources tracking the air war.
An adviser to the outgoing mayor did not respond to an email seeking more detail on the ads, which will begin running Tuesday and continue through the eve of the Nov. 5 election.
McAuliffe has courted and wooed Bloomberg, privately seeking his support on a trip to New York City Hall in August.
Bloomberg, who bills himself as an independent, has spent more than $15 million on various gun control initiatives. He just spent $1 million helping elect Newark Mayor Cory Booker to a U.S. Senate seat in last Wednesday’s New Jersey special election to replace the late Frank Lautenberg, long a champion of gun control measures.Michael Bloomberg hates guns and hates freedom. Do we want billionaire liberal Yankees from New York City giving big money to a New York carpetbagger to bring big city liberalism to Virginia?
