Bloomberg Anti-Gun Group Loses 97 Percent Of Va. Delegate Races

 

 

 

” 2013 was a lousy year for Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a group co-founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. Despite the millions of dollars the group and Bloomberg himself contributed to support gun control laws and candidates who support them, they had little success to show for it.

Although Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ efforts helped defeat GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, no one seriously expected him to win. However, of the 67 Virginia House of Delegates candidates endorsed by the National Rifle Association and targeted by Bloomberg’s group, 65 won, according to the Washington Examiner.”
