Anti-Gun Rep Benefits from $2.2 Million Ad Campaign
By Harold Hutchison
New York City Mayor and anti-gun zealot Michael Bloomberg’s super-PAC’s $2.2 million ad campaign helped Robin Kelly defeat a former Congresswoman in the Democratic primary for the seat vacated by Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Kelly is likely to win the 9 April special election to fill the seat.
Bloomberg, who has pushed for major restrictions on Second Amendment rights, bludgeoned former Representative Debbie Halvorson over her proven record as a friend to law-abiding gun owners. Halvorson had previously served one term in the House before losing re-election in 2010.
Bloomberg is estimated to be worth $25 billion, and has vowed to use his fortune to push gun control. With this sort of money, the only thing that will stop him from buying seat after seat is to join the NRA, support NRA-ILA, and to get involved at all levels of politics, and to get your friends and family involved.
