“… Bloomberg (I) has donated $25,000 of his own money to six Senate Democratic candidates, who are involved in some of the closest races in the state … He plans to travel to Northern Virginia next week to appear with some of the candidates … Republicans are aggressively trying to take control of the state Senate, where Democrats hold a slim 22-18 majority. Bloomberg is concerned that a Republican-controlled Senate will further loosen Virginia’s gun laws, including overturning the state’s one-gun-a-month restriction …”
This is pocket change for him. He made larger campaign contributions to local reps. in support of gay marriage.
While the candidates probably appreciate the cash, I question whether his going down there to campaign with them is going to be viewed by the public as a positive for these incumbents. It just looks like him meddling in other people’s affairs. However, if Bloomberg wants to go and ruin other antigun politicians careers more power to him.
